River Po sources on Monviso dry up due to drought

Extremely rare event

(ANSA) - Saluzzo, September 5 - The sources to the mighty River Po on the Monviso mountain have dried up due to the recent long drought that has hit Italy. As a result there is no water flowing next to the famous sculpted rock at 2,020 metres above sea level that reads "Here begins the Po" - an extremely rare event. The 652km Po is Italy's longest river.
