Rain, Rain....and Rain Every Day

This has been a record rain year in Bogotá and across much of Colombia. Already, the rains have killed more than a hundred people, flooded many regions and driven more than a million people out of their homes.

The rains follow 2009's drought. The pattern is caused by the El Niño/La Niña phenomenon, and causes suffering both coming and going.

While this year's rains have been torrential, deforestation has increased erosion and landslides. 

Every well-dressed dog this rainy season.
