Drought in Sabah

The heat is driving us crazy in Sabah! The star has been covering the situation & it's happening all over Malaysia. Rivers and dams are drying up. There has been increase in forest fires and this drought may last till May!
I'm glad that at least the Sabah Forestry Department is doing something about it. Efforts to rehabilitate a forest reserve is being undertakan after years of illegal clearing and degradation. It is said that reforestation can increase cloud cover. That is definitely what we would want in this situation!
I just hope it rains soon. But till then, we have to save water and prepare for a long dry spell.
