Despite a delay in acquisition of satellite imagery, SWALIM has finalised the mapping of River breakages along the Juba River as the Deyr rainy season advances. A map showing river breakages can be downloaded from Juba River Breakages Map. A table providing the river breakages within Middle and Lower Shabelle regions, that require immediate attention, is also available on Juba River Breakages Table.
The Deyr rains are usually shorter and less in quantity than the Gu rains, however, they are beneficial in supporting agricultural activities and boosting water availability for different uses. Generally the season starts in late September and ends in November. Nevertheless, this varies from place to place across the country with the northern parts receiving the rains much earlier than the southern parts. Click here to download the file
