    I understand it’s impossible to mention everything but I think two major events are missing in this summary.
    One is the flooding in El Salvador in October. President Funes called it the worst disaster in the country’s history.

    The other is the the monsoon in Pakistan, which was largely ignored because last year’s disaster was even worse.
