Cape Town Faces Water Crisis

South Africa’s second-largest city is due to run out of water on April 12.  According to city officials, Cape Town is dangerously close to running completely dry.  As the so-called “Day Zero” looms, the available water supply is being rationed for the city’s nearly 4 million citizens.  International efforts to help have been organized through social media, to provide some relief to Capetonians.  But no definitive solution has been found, and Day Zero is moving ever closer.
