ST-2019-000046-MNG SEVERE LOCAL STORM Mongolia Heavy snowfall and violent wind gusts hit southern parts of Mongolia between 10 May and 11 May 2019. According to the National Agency for Meteorology and Environmental Monitoring (NAMEM), wind speeds fluctuated between 18 and 24 m/s (-17 degrees Celsius wind chill factor) and reached 28 to 30 m/s (-24 degrees Celsius wind chill factor) in parts of Govi-Altai and Bayankhongor provinces. Early warnings were disseminated through multiple media and social media channels. However, due to the sudden change of weather (within 30 to 40 minutes), many herders did not have enough time to save their livestock from the storm. According to current estimates, pover 11,000 sheep units of livestock have perished as a result of the extreme weather condition. The melting of the accumulated snow (up to 30 centimeters) poses a risk of flash loods especially in Sevrei and Tsogttsetsii soums of Umnugovi province.

DR-2019-000042-PRK Drought Korea, Democratic People's Republic Democratic People's Republic of Korea has been suffering of consecutive droughts since 2014. Entering 2019, DPRK has experienced unusually erratic weather conditions with little precipitation, limiting available soil moisture for growth of winter crops and planting of spring crops, as well as replenishment of irrigation water reservoirs. The temperatures over the last couple of months have also been higher than normal. Early spring precipitation has so far not been enough to redress the imbalance, and only very good late spring/early summer rains will do so. The conditions for soil moisture and irrigation are at an alarming level. The current lack of precipitation and soil moisture will not only affect winter and spring-planted crops, but also the planting of the main crop to be harvested in September. With the current agricultural conditions, millions of people are at risk of malnutrition. Any threat to food security will have a serious effect on an already stressed population in terms of food availability and the risk of increased malnutrition, which will affect the most vulnerable sectors of the affected population: children, pregnant and lactating women, the elderly, and those with underlying illnesses.
