A vulture stands over the drying lakebed of the Itumbiara hydroelectric dam in Itumbiara
A vulture stands over the drying lakebed of the Itumbiara hydroelectric dam as the dam runs at only 9 percent of capacity due to low water levels, according to the dam's operator, in the city of Itumbiara on the border between the states of Goias and Minas Gerais in Central Brazil, January 9, 2013. One of the worst droughts in Brazil's history is depriving many dams of the water they need to generate electricity, but Brazil looks less vulnerable today to an energy crisis similar to one in 2001, since the government built dozens of thermoelectric power plants to reduce the country's dependence on hydro power from 88 percent to about 75 percent.
