AD­DIS ABABA: Land­slide and above-av­er­age rain­fall killed three peo­ple in Ethiopia’s coun­try­side, the Ethiopian State News Agency re­ported yes­ter­day.

They died in two in­ci­dents late on Sun­day in two dif­fer­ent dis­tricts of Ethiopia’s East Shoa zone, Oro­mia re­gional state. Two men were killed in a land­slide in a sand­dig­ging area and another woman died as her house col­lapsed in rain.

The tragedies oc­curred amid the Ethiopian Me­te­o­rol­ogy Agency’s lat­est warn­ing over the prospect of above-av­er­age rain­fall with a prob­a­ble thun­der­storm, threat­en­ing some ce­real-pro­duc­ing ar­eas in the coun­try.
