‘Crippling’ drought causes mass evacuations in Mexico
- by admin
A deadly drought in the southwestern state of Chiapas has forced tens of thousands of people from their homes, leaving millions homeless.
The drought has affected the state’s livestock, agricultural and agricultural products sectors, as well as the people’s health, according to the Mexican government.
The state has experienced more than 40 inches (1,000 centimeters) of rain since March, with officials reporting that more than 8 million people are without power.
The death toll from the drought has risen to 17, including more than 2,000 people from the region of Oaxaca, where the capital city of Mexico City is located, and in the state of Guerrero.
The country’s Central and Southern Pacific states, which account for most of the state, have also been hit by severe droughts in recent years.
In January, a record drought caused water shortages in California and the San Francisco Bay area.
More than half of Mexico’s agricultural output is produced by livestock, according the government.
