The drought-hit Panama Canal is suffering from an issue of traffic as a flotilla of ships is reportedly stuck on both sides, reports YouTube.

The vessels have been waiting for weeks to cross after the authorities reduced transits to conserve water.

More than 200 ships are currently waiting to pass, data from vessel tracking showed. This number has increased since the canal last month limited daily transits to 32 from an average of 36 under normal circumstances.
