Massive Water Resource Exists Under Africa

Scientists discovered a vast reservoir of groundwater lying under the African continent. According to the survey, the total volume of water in aquifers underground is 100 times the amount found on the surface. If tapped, the resource could help millions skirt hunger and loss of livelihood brought on by drought.
