Costa Rica and Honduras de- clared states of emergency this week. Nicaragua, in a national emergency since the devas- tating Dec. 23 earthquake, had serious financial problems be- cause of drought long before the quake struck. Lighter than usual rainfall during last year's rainy season left water tables below their normal levels. The situation be- came acute as the regional en- tered its current dry season, which normally lasts until May. The drought has affected pro- duction of basic grains and other farm products which have had to be supplied by import. The result has been an increase in the cost of living for the area's 12 million Inhabitants. In many areas drinking water is rationed. Here is a summary of the sit- uation in each of the countries: COSTA RICA Probably the hardest hit by the drought. Rivers that supply hydroelectric plants are low and electricity is cut off 12 hours a day. Companies were authorized to give employes an extra week of vacation at Easter to reduce electrical consumption Cattle have been moved from dry zones or exported. Author- ities also expect to ration drink- ing water. Preliminary estimates place daily losses due to the drought at million. EL SALVADOR Basic crops affected. Facto- ries changed shifts and vaca- tions extended to conserve elec- tricity. HONDURAS Water is rationed In many areas. Rivers are 50 per cent below their normal levels. Emergency wells were drilled to provide water for cereals and pastures, and the government says livestock will suffer the worst losses from the drought. GUATEMALA Water is rationed in the capi- tal. Prices of basic grains in creased and the government imported corn and beans to be sold at low prices to the public. Rivers and lakes are low. NICARAGUA Grain production, except for rice, reduced. Drinking water is scarce in some parts of the country. The level of water for the Central American hydro- electric plant, which provides electricity for the entire coun- try, is low.
