SNOWFALL IN SOMALIA REPORTED
The first snowfall on this part of the world has claimed one life and caused extensive damage to properties.Puntland,northeastern part of Somalia has never recorded snowfall before last night when snowstorms and high winds destroyed homes in Rako town.


The storms left a blanket of snow on the ground,something residents had never seen in their lives before.Aside from this unexplained snowfall on this tropical land,Somalia has experienced very strange weather in the past few months.


FLoods kill people and forced rivers to overflow banks in almost all of the country.Many cities from Hargeisa in the north to Baladweyn in central were affected badly by heavy rains and floods.Many people were killed and thousands of livestock washed away by this strange weather.The country is still struggling to recover from last monthīs killer weather.


With no effective central government,Somalia doesnīt have weather predictions or climate monitoring systems in place.Somalis think this unusual weather and last nightīs previously unheard of snowfall are part of the global warming phenomena.

I was trying to get confirmation of this report from some other source. I had no luck. It may be true but you would think someone else would be reporting it.

This information would not get reported by main stream media, because of itīs lack of knowledge to explain. Snow doesnīt fall in reigons like that. It would be like saying in antarctica it was 100 degrees,almost like the oceans currents are already changing which will bring terrible climate change to the rest of the world.

The Sahara was once a water rich tropical rainforest.

Odds are that it snowed in Somalia regularly, though it was probably a long time before we started making records.

Re: SNOWFALL IN SOMALIA REPORTED
Temperatures across Somalia look to be fairly normal now. My guess is that this was actually hail - which often gets mistaken for snow even in England, especially when it falls at night - there is no mention of sub-zero temperatures being recorded which would be necessary for snow to fall. And which would also have resulted in rather more than 1 death Iīd have thought!

Thanks stormchaser. This makes perfect sense to me why this story was intentionally ignored by the mainstream press.
