I am interested in learning if other residents have seen a change of climate over the years.
My 15 years in Mahajanga has shown me that the rains are later over the years, the cool weather lasts longer and into Nov and the winds continue into Nov and are stronger than years passed. The winds keep the rains away.
My wife who is Malagasy has mentioned to me that her father, may he rest in peace, used to mention that the first rains would come Oct 25, and now I see the real serious rains comes at the end of Nov and into Dec. This creates a later growing season for corn and rice. And fruits such as mangoes are not as sweet until the first few strong rains, and doctors report that eating mangoes can cause stomack problems until these rains do arrive.
Again I am on the west coast so what is happening with Climate change on your side of the island?
What are your observations and those of your Malagasy friends and family?
