They found water in the Sahara

Huge underground water reservoirs have been discovered beneath the Sahara by researchers, according to the BBC. The volume of water deposits is estimated to feed the desert area for the next 400 years.

The new reservoir named Ohangwena II extends between the Angola and Namibia borders, covering a total of 43 miles with 25 being on the Namibian side

The waters have been around for about 10,000 years and their purity is greater than many sources in the western world, and they are suitable for drinking.

At this stage in the Namibia region, about 800,000 people live and drink water from a 40-year-old canal that brings them water from Angola.

The developer argues that this discovery can radically change the agricultural processes and crops in the area.
