A series of factors causes little rain in eight northeastern states (Maranhao is outside) and in the north of Minas Gerais. One of the explanations is the fact that there are no large natural water reserves in the region. In addition, the systems that create the rains across the country cannot reach the area – they are stuck in the South and Southeast regions.
