Crisis Cabinet To Deal With Drought

Despite the recent rain in Andalucia, reservoirs remain dangerously low on water supplies.  The regional government in Andalucia has now established a crisis cabinet to tackle the problem head on.  The cabinet will monitor the situation on a daily basis, and report directly to Andalucian President Juanma Moreno with recommendations and suggestions.

Rainfall this year has been at an all time low.  The drought is threatening the algricultural sector where irrigation is a serious issue, olive farmers have already reported devastatingly poor harvests in Andalucia.  The water shortages are also affecting the tourist sector, and domestic water supplies are also under threat.
