California Drought

What is the drought in California?

The drought in California has been declared the worst drought in history. The lack of rainfall is having a severe impact on the terrain, not to mention millions of animals. The drought is the result of high air pressure off the Pacific coast, resulting in a decrease in rainfall. Lakes, rivers, and many other natural water sources are starting to disappear, and California state officials are urging residents to start to take serious measures to conserve water. However, this is not enough. Forrest fires and brown lawns are common throughout california. Animals and sea creatures are at a serious risk. But, you may be able to help.
