Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Mat 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Severe Drought Causes Brazilians to Fight Over Scarce Water – Drought – ubAlert

Severe drought is taking its toll on more than 1100 towns, even triggering fighting in rural areas in Brazil. Report said that an average of one person a day is being killed in “water wars”, while scores of animals are wasting away before perishing. Short water supplies have devastated farm output, endangering the lives of local people and their livestock. Many people in the area have lost half their stock, and the Government has reduced forecasts for corn, soy and bean crops. In Pernambuco, the drought brought 66 municipalities on emergencies. Local dams are drying up, rivers have run dry and animals looking for water in the riverbed can find only the odd muddy puddle. This is the worst drought so far in 50 years.
