No hints please, we're Australian

Oh AlertNet Weekly Quiz - you're usually so challenging, particularly when I haven't really read anything on your site for over a week. But today, I've got to say, you've kind of dropped the ball a little bit:

The AlertNet Challenge
6 of 6

QUESTION 6
What aspect of climate change has displaced over half a million people in West Africa since June this year?
Drought
Heavy rainfall
Earthquakes


Maybe, just maybe, you gave the answer away with the picture. Let's see shall we?




QUESTION 6 - CORRECT!
What aspect of climate change has displaced over half a million people in West Africa since June this year?
Heavy rainfall

Heavy flooding has displaced over half a million people and killed over 100 in West Africa since the start of the rainy season in June, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has said. A vast multi-agency effort is underway in the region to provide relief including shelter, food, water and proper hygiene conditions for the homeless and most vulnerable.

I feel cheated now. I managed to guess the other five questions correctly without any overly obvious pictorial clues...I just can't say that I truly got 6 out of 6 this week. *sigh*
