Venice canals drying up

The canals in Venice, also known as Queen of the Adriatic, are drying up due to low tides and little rain in the last few weeks. The super blue blood moon was the cause of the low tides which caused the water level to drop by more than 60cm. Regular water levels should return back on Friday as the rain returns. However, this is not the first time where the water levels dropped so significantly. In 2016, the water levels dropped by 66cm. The record was set in 1934 when the water levels dropped by 121cm. It has turned the canals into muddy channels, where gondolas and boats lie. This is the third year in a row where this occurred to Venice.
