MOST regions are expected to experience drought to be caused by below normal seasonal rains, a situation which is likely to affect agriculture, food security and water supply.

The Tanzania Meteorological Agency (TMA) Director General, Dr Agnes Kijazi, said in Dar es Salaam on Wednesday that the below normal rains would be triggered by prevailing climate system where the Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) in the Central Equatorial Pacific have been uncharacteristically cool for the past two months.
