The French authorities have restricted the use of water to 88 departments due to heat and drought, the correspondent of "Adyrna" reports.

Water shortages are particularly severe in Pays-de-la-Loire and Poitou-Charentes. It was caused by weeks of unusually hot weather and low winter rainfall.

According to the imposed restrictions, residents of the affected areas were prohibited from watering their gardens during the day.
