The Canary Islands have just gone through the driest summer in 40 years,recieving the least rainfall in all of Spain.
According to the the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), the Archipelago registered less than 25 per cent of its normal rainfall.
Although the drought eased slightly in April when some rain fell in the Archipelago, May turned out to be one of the hottest and driest months for years.
The islands also suffered six heat waves and Calimas with temperatures above 38 degrees and, in some areas of Gran Canaria, up to 41 C during the summer.
The Met office also predict a mostly dry month for September, great for the visitors, not so for the farmers.
