Severe drought

Winter too hot, there is no water. Sicily declares a state of natural disaster

"Sicily – explains the Council – is the only region in Italy, and among the few in Europe, in the red zone due to lack of water resources. The same situation is found in Morocco and Algeria"

The drought is causing direct consequences on agriculture and the work of farmers: livestock farming is one of the sectors most affected due to the absence of vegetation to feed the animals and the lack of hay supplies. There is also an important impact on the wine sector, since the lack of rain is preventing the collection of water to irrigate the land.
