Principal Cuban Reservoir Very Low

HAVANA TIMES, Sept. 29 – Deep into what should be the Cuban rainy season, the Zaza Dam, the islands largest reservoir, is currently at only 21 per cent of its capacity, due to the deficit in rainfall, reported the local press on Tuesday.  The drop in water level could affect the Sur de El Jibaro rice complex, in the central province of Sancti Spíritus.   Cuba is currently in a battle to reduce imports by producing more of its staple foods.
