Drought in Chile

While I’m at it, another global drought report (I’m really just catching up on some news stories I set aside over the last week to read). This time Chile:

Farmers in small towns in south-central Chile have lost crops and livestock in the drought blamed on the weather phenomenon La Nina.

Rainfall records show the semi-arid region got one of its lowest levels of precipitation in half a century, and some specialists say its been 80 years since the weather got so dry.
