``When we last checked in with Venezuela, the country was already being crippled by shortages. The situation has deteriorated further. Water is now rationed by the government, and some residents have been warned that water will be supplied just once every 21 days after the mainland reservoir dries up. Venezuelans have begun stealing water from swimming pools and tanker trucks to get by. Electricity is limited too, with Maduro ordering public offices open just two days a week in a bid to conserve energy... Damage to Venezuela's economy has been exacerbated by drought. About 65 percent of the country's electricity is generated by a single hydroelectric dam that's now in serious trouble.''
