Mexico Faces Water Shortages as Another Heat Wave Sends Temperatures Soaring

HeadlineMay 28, 2024

Mexico is now experiencing its third heat wave of the year. Temperatures as high as 113 degrees Fahrenheit are forecast for today across at least two-thirds of the country. This comes as water has emerged as a key issue in next Sunday’s elections. Mexico City residents have been forced to ration water for months due to a worsening drought that could leave as many as 22 million people without access to water. Officials warn reserves could run dry as soon as late June.
