Eldorado Posted August 11, 2022 #1 Share Posted August 11, 2022 Officials will declare a drought in south-west England tomorrow, it’s understood. Those living in the south-west are likely to be hit with a number of restrictions on domestic and commercial use of water tomorrow, Sky News reports. The announcement looms after the country suffered the driest start to the year since 1976. It also follows a heat health alert issued for this week as temperatures surge to 35°C. Hosepipe bans have already been announced for large swathes of the south – affecting nearly 19 million people. But this number could jump to 33 million as three more water companies reportedly consider introducing the rule. Meanwhile, the risk of wildfires breaking out in parts of England and Wales has been elevated to its highest level – ‘exceptional’.
