California drought

California is already two thirds of the way through its "wet season," but the parched, dry State has received little to no rain. 

Two weeks ago, Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency.
On Friday, in an unprecedented move, the State announced it would cut the amount of water it delivers to water agencies from 5% to zero.
    The whole situation has farmers in the state worried.

Earl Herrick, owner of Earl's Organic Produce, said "I think this year we'll see maybe a little less product, maybe a little smaller, if we have another year like this though it will be a tragedy."

California would need to see heavy rain or snow every other day from now until May, just to get the State back to its average annual precipitation totals.
