Around much of the Northern Hemisphere, from Hungary to Hawaii, from the drying Rhine River to the now-recovering Rio Grande, or from Casablanca to California, summer droughts and high temperatures are having a serious impact on everything from agriculture to the freight industry.

As was the day of Ahad and Jezebel, so is it today

Here’s a rundown of some of the latest drought-related developments from around the world, plus a window to more bespoke coverage in various media.

There was a prophecy by prophet Elijah who prophecised a drought of three and a half years. He warned Ahab that there will be years of catastrophic drought so severe that not even dew will form, because Ahab and his queen stand at the end of a line of kings of Israel who are said to have “done evil in the sight of the Lord.”

1 Kings 17

1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, “As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except according to my word.”

2 And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying,

3 “Get thee hence and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the Brook Cherith, that is before the Jordan.

4 And it shall be that thou shalt drink of the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.”

5 So he went and did according unto the word of the Lord; for he went and dwelt by the Brook Cherith, that is before the Jordan.

6 And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank from the brook.
