By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Mexican Farmers say that they are being affected by the severe drought affecting the north of the country, Reuters report.

Hicterio Torres Franco says that his animals are dying, deprived of water in one of the worst droughts the country has seen for 30 years.

According to Franco, about 19 cows died along with donkeys.

“It’s been a big loss,” Torres said. His farm is located alongside the El Granero dam in Chihuahua.

Official data indicate that only 10% of Mexico’s dams are now full, with many seeing levels drop below half or lower.

Mexico’s national weather service says that July was the 2nd hottest month since 1953.

Farmers in the town are now suffering since their harvests have been disrupted, and fisheries culled, forcing some workers to move to cities.

The rivers in the area have also dried up and fields that should be teeming are bare.

The farmers say what they really need is rain.
