Declaran emergencia por sequía en el norte de Italia

July 5, 2022 - Italia ha declarado un estado de emergencia en áreas que rodean el río Po, que sufre la peor sequía en 70 años. Roma ha destinado €36,5 millones para ayudar a enfrentar la escasez de agua.

The Po is Italy's longest river which runs for more than 650 km through the wealthy north of Italy. However, many stretches of the waterway have run dry and farmers say the flow is so weak that sea water is seeping inland, destroying crops, according to Reuters.

The government said in a statement that the emergency measures would cover lands that bordered the Po and the water basins of the eastern Alps.

More broadly, it also introduced a state of emergency in five northern regions – Emilia-Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Lombardy, Piedmont and Veneto, Reuters said.
