"AMMAN, 25 December 2008 (IRIN) - Jordan's plight with drought has been highlighted this year with almost no rain falling on the kingdom, prompting officials to call on citizens to pray for rain on Friday 26 December.

Fear is growing that if no rain falls in the coming few days, the agriculture season for vegetables, wheat and barley would be wasted."

It has been very dry this year, although it has rained for a couple of days in Beirut in the Bekaa, we are still far behind. Last year was a severe drought year, and we has received twice the amount of rainfall we got this year so far.
