Cape Town, South Africa to Run Out of Water by April 12th

Officials in Cape Town, South Africa, have warned that the city will run  out of water on April 12. How has  major city in the developed world  run dry? CNN reports that it's due to three factors: 1) The worst  drought in more than a century, 2) The growing population and 3) The  rapidly changing climate. Starting February 1, residents will only be  allowed to use 50 liters (a little over 12 gallons) of water per person,  per day. "It is quite unbelievable that a majority of people do not  seem to care and are sending all of us headlong towards Day Zero," the  mayor's office said in a statement. "We can no longer ask people to stop  wasting water. We must force them."
