A multiple natural disaster
I reported recently that Mongolia was currently suffering from a winter which, even by local standards, is proving disastrously severe. This report from Mongolia-Web indicates that the situation remains critical, particularly for those in the most remote regions.

Wow, that certainly puts our few weeks of snow into perspective... It's obviously (and unfortunately) not so unusual though, if there is this special word - "dzud" - to describe the situation. The term sounds very fitting though, almost onomatopoeiaic(?)
