I guess there are some good benefits to a drought. It seems that a drought allows us to study a bit of history.
The ruins of a huge 16th Century church have emerged from a reservoir in Mexico. A lack of rain in the southern state of Chiapas has meant the water level has dropped by 25m (75ft).
It is believed the church was abandoned in the 1700s because of a plague in the area.
