Lack of Precipitation, High Pressure Worsen Drought Conditions

Environmental specialist speaks on how the drought is affecting Southern California.

Even though it rained Sunday night in Los Angeles, it was not nearly enough to impact Southern California's current drought.

Last month, Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency, allowing the state government more latitude in response to the increased fire risk and lack of water for farms.

Last week, Brown slashed allocations to the State Water Project to zero, calling it "a stark reminder that California’s drought is real."

Environmental specialist John Wilson asserted in an interview with ATVN that while storms form in our region, the systems skip over the coast and head directly to the Midwest - leaving Los Angeles high and dry.
