Following the US state of California Cuba had to introduce water saving measures. The reason is the same: a catastrophic drought. There were only 63% of normal rainfall in the first quarter. Provinces of the country suffered most of all. Santiago de Cuba water reservoir is filled by a third, and in the province of Las Tunas even less: 29%. Moreover, drinking water to thousands of people all 112 provinces is being brought in tanks.

Priorities in the water supply in the east of Cuba are arranged as follows. First access to water is given to people and cattle. Then the water is spent on irrigating crops and other activities related to the production of food. As a residual water is supplied to factories that manufacture a variety of industrial products, as well as to entertainment places.
