The following are rainfall figures for Ivory Coast, the world’s biggest cocoa producer, for Feb. 1 to Feb. 10, according to the National Meteorological Service.

The southwestern Soubre region, including the western coastal towns of San Pedro, Tabou and Sassandra, also produces about 300,000 tons a year.

The figures are tabulated under weather station, the amount of rainfall received, long-term average rainfall over the past 30 years, the number of days it has rained and the amount of rainfall in the same period last year. Rainfall amounts are in millimeters.
