Harare is currently experiencing significant water shortages as of Thursday, June 27. According to local authorities, the situation is due to an ongoing drought and a shortage of foreign currency to buy water chemicals for water treatment, prompting authorities to declare the situation a state of emergency. Water rationing has reportedly recently been implemented throughout the city. Associated protests are possible in the near term if the situation continues to deteriorate.
Individuals in Harare are advised to conserve water, stock up on bottled water, keep abreast of the situation via local media outlets, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities (e.g. water rationing measures).
