1963-06-13 droughts water rationing measures

Serious droughts have also been recorded in Hong Kong history, with 1963 being the worst year when only 901 millimetres of rainfall were recorded, a record which remains unbroken to this day. As a result, the Hong Kong government had to implement water rationing measures in the form of water supply for only four hours every four days throughout the year.
In 1963, Hong Kong experienced a severe drought. This photograph shows citizens queuing for fresh water on streets when water supply was restricted.
Only the HKJC totalisator had the watering system to keep their turf against the droughts.
