California Governor Declares Drought Officially Over

Following years of drought conditions, California’s governor  Jerry Brown declared on Friday that the California drought emergency is over for the majority of the state. The announcement comes nearly 6 years after the drought took hold.

The state’s drought emergency has officially ended for all but the following four Central California counties: Fresno, Kings, Tulare and Tuolumne.

“This drought emergency is over, but the next drought could be around the corner,” Gov. Brown said in a statement on Friday.

A recent snowpack survey in the Sierra found that the snowpack is at 160% of normal with 18 feet of standing snow. In fact, the snowpack is just 5 inches from setting an all-time record.
