Since 2013, when the California drought was announced, residents  have been taking precaution on the issue.  Lately for the past few weeks, the state has been experiencing heavy rain  because of this,  it might be having positive changes in the environment.

According to the National Weather Service, California are in between 3 different types of droughts;  the Abnormally dry, Moderate drought, and Severe drought.

Junior, Stephanie Vogl recently said “I don’t believe we are completely out of drought, but I do believe this weather has helped a bit.”

National Weather Service  states that because of the recent weather,  it is a good start to get out of this drought.

Senior, Alejandra Amador says “I believe our state will recover from the drought we’ve been in because it has been raining a lot lately which means we’ve been getting a lot of water.”

The National Weather Service suggests, that because of the drought occurring, taking showers should be shorter and to use less water and also to not take water for granted because it is something that human-beings need as well as our Earth.

Junior, Stephanie also stated “As soon as I found out about the drought I cut down my water usage. I realized that this was serious. My showers became shorter and I became more grateful for water. I realized that the world is already in so much trouble, that I should at least help out a little bit.”

The NWS says that they shall be putting a $500 fine on those who tend to waste water in a very drastic way.
Sophomore, Nayeli Aguilera says “I do think it’ the right thing to fine people that much because we can’t take water for granted, it’s something we live off of.”
