      More than 100 towns in the Po valley have been asked to ration water amid the worst drought to affect Italy’s longest river in 70 years.

      Northern Italy has been deprived of significant rainfall for months, with the effects of drought along the 400-mile (650km) Po River, which stretches from the Alps in the north-west and flows through the Po delta before spilling out into the Adriatic, becoming visible early in the year.

      The issue has been exacerbated by higher-than-usual temperatures and much less snow in the winter, especially in the southern Alps, which contributed to lower snowmelt flowing into the Po.

      if anyone there does rainwater collection. If not, they might have to look into it in the future.

      The people-to-cake ratio is too high.
