Drought leaves Italians praying for rain
Catholic World News - April 02, 2012
Cardinal Giuseppe Betori of Florence is leading prayers for rain as much of Italy struggles with a severe drought.
The shortage of rain during the winter months has created a problem for central and northern Italy, and experts say that even normal rainfall in the next several weeks would leave the region with a significant deficit during the summer.
