South Africa: Cape Town braces for Day Zero water crisis

Cape Town residents braced for Day Zero, the day the city's taps will run dry, as footage filmed on Saturday shows. Footage captured scores of people queuing up for water refills at a local mountain spring collection point. The South African city is experiencing its worst drought in decades, which has reportedly forced the city's administration to limit water consumption to 50 litres per... Еще person per day. When water levels at dams drop to 13.5 percent, Cape Town residents will be expected to collect daily water rations of 25 litres from 200 standpipes in the area. Officials have advised residents to stockpile bottled water to prepare for Day Zero, which is forecast for April 12.
