A Third Of California Now Drought-Free Thanks To Strong 2019 Winter Storms

About a third of California is now drought-free thanks to a rainy 2019 so far.

The U.S. Drought Monitor says 34-percent of the state now has no level of drought, compared to eight-percent at the start of the year. No part of California is currently at the most severe levels of drought and only two-percent, mostly near the Oregon border, is still considered in a severe drought.

California's most recent drought peaked in August of 2014 when all of the state was parched and nearly 60-percent was in an exceptional drought, the dryest level of all.
