India’s Bengaluru is fast running out of water, and a long, scorching summer still looms

Associated Press

BENGALURU, India (AP) — Bengaluru in southern India is witnessing an unusually hot February and March, and in the last few years, it has received little rainfall in part due to human-caused climate change.

City and state government authorities are trying to get the situation under control with emergency measures such as nationalizing water tankers and putting a cap on water costs. But water experts and many residents fear the worst of the heat for this year is still to come in April and May.
