Water shortage in Samoa leads to rationing

Updated 29 November 2012, 18:51 AEDT

A water shortage in Samoa has led to rationing for some people.

Around four thousand people, mainly in the capital Apia, are only getting six hours of water supply in the mornings and six hours in the evening.

All Samoans are being asked to save water.

Tauili'ili Ekiumeni Fauolo, manager of the Samoa Water Authority's urban operations and maintenance division, tells Bruce Hill everyone is being very good natured about the shortage, which should be over when the rains come.
