In Spain, as a result of the most severe drought in the past twenty years, the river Tajo, the largest on the Iberian Peninsula, could dry up completely.
Lack of rain is felt since last spring, with the advent of dry and hot autumn the situation has become more complicated. Experts fear that by 2100 a large part of the country may become a desert.
The most serious is the drought of agriculture. The absence of rain has led to the loss of 70% of the crop of cereals. In reservoirs, water reserves decreased by 37% of their capacity. In some villages, because of the lack of food, they had to slaughter livestock.
