By TesfaNews,

An unusual spring storm today in the afternoon hours dumped up to one meter of snow in Asmara following a one and half hour heavy rain.

Reports indicate that the subsequent flooding and widespread snow clusters in most of the city’s streets caused some kind of transport difficulties.

Unlike last year, the 2014 rainy season in the country looks like has opened with a fair intensity and distribution since last week and that creates optimism for a better harvesting season. 

State media reports today’s flood and storm is by far the heaviest recorded.
