Right now, sustained torrential rain is causing devastation in both developed and developing countries. Hurricane Harvey has displaced tens of thousands of people in Houston and tragically killed 15. Several weeks ago, hundreds of homes and businesses were buried under a mudslide affecting communities around Sierra Leone's capital, Freetown; and following much heavier than usual monsoon rains, Bangladesh, India and Nepal have been affected by the worst floods in decades impacting on almost 41 million people and killing thousands. The situation is expected to worsen as monsoon season continues through the end of September.
