Drought spreads

The state of drought in Portugal has deteriorated during the month of August.

According to the Portuguese Met Office, only 1.2 percent of the country was considered to be in a state considered normal, with the remainder of the territory in varying degrees of drought.

The Algarve and the Alentejo were the worst affected, with little or no rainfall recorded in these regions in August.
