A combination of file photos show Luiza Dos Reis (L), 67, posing for a portrait next to containers and bottles with water reserve inside her home after filling it through a water pipe in Itu October 27, 2014 and Natalino Pereira (R), 12, posing for a portrait on the cracked ground of the Itaim dam after bathing in it, in Itu October 28, 2014. After a grueling election campaign in which officials faced fierce criticism for downplaying the effects of a year-long drought, Brazil's most populous state is finally coming to terms with an uncomfortable reality: it is running out of water. Sao Paulo state accounts for a third of Brazil's economy and 40 percent of its industrial production, and the water crisis is already crimping factory and farm output as well as the service sector in a stagnant economy. Hit by Brazil's worst drought in 80 years, the two main reservoirs serving metropolitan Sao Paulo, South America's largest city, could dry out by February if relief does not arrive in the upcoming rainy season.
