BRAZIL-DROUGHT/
RTR4P6ZS
11 Feb. 2015
Sao Paulo, Brazil
Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) patient Pedro, sits on his bed before being washed with the help of his daughter Daniela (L), 38, and wife Maria Do Carmo, 70, inside their house in Brasilandia slum, of which they are without water for 13 hours a day, in Sao Paulo February 11, 2015. Brazilians are hoarding water in their apartments, drilling homemade wells and taking other emergency measures to prepare for forced rationing that appears likely and could leave taps dry for up to five days a week because of a drought.. In Sao Paulo, the country's largest city with a metropolitan area of 20 million people, the main reservoir is at just 6 percent of capacity with the peak of the rainy season now past. Many neighborhoods have already experienced daily water outages as Sabesp turns down pressure in pipes to save consumption. Some residents of the Brasilandia slum said this week they were often without water 13 hours a day. REUTERS/Nacho Doce (BRAZIL - Tags: HEALTH ENVIRONMENT SOCIETY DISASTER)
