BTN Clip: Cape Town Water Crisis:

.Cape Town in South Africa has been experiencing an ongoing drought for a couple of years now, but over the past few months it has been getting worse. People are saying that the taps could even run out of water by the 4th of June, and that that day is going to be called ‘day zero’. People in Cape Town have only been allowed 50 litres of water a day and, if you have a family, you also have to share that 50 litress of water with them.

.How long can droughts last for? What is the largest drought / longest drought ever recorded?

.I understand the effects that a drought can have on a town, village or even one person.
