A heatwave has hit much of Europe, exacerbating a drought that has also been hitting the continent.
Amid a historic drought that is being called the worst on record in the country, France is running out of drinking water.
More than 100 communities are reportedly in need of drinking water and authorities are trucking in water in an attempt to ease the burden. “There is nothing left in the pipes,” Minister for Ecological Transition Christophe Béchu said.
