A Mexican agency reported that three quarters of Baja California territory records at least moderate drought.

The state Department of Environment and Sustainable Development said drought especially impacts Mexicali, Ensenada and San Quintín.

The report says close to a fifth of the state territory has severe drought while 5.3 percent presents abnormal drought.

The agency expects drought to continue increasing over the next years due to climate change and agricultural soil erosion.

In the last years, rainwater has declined up to 20 percent, the agency said.

Although the state has implement activities to address the issue distribution and supply of water has been problematic for years in Baja California.
