TULARE COUNTY (CBS13) — The drought devastation has gotten worse in Tulare County in the weeks since we examined the lack of water as part of our five-part drought series.

Conditions are desperate enough that neighbors are stealing water from each other.

A company CBS13 profiled from the Bay Area that makes devices that pull water from thin air decided to help.

 

With so many people desperately in need, so many hundreds without water, Pastor Ramon Hernandez’s donated drinking water is almost always in short supply.

“It’s all over the county, all over the valley, but this is the worst of the worst, the east side of Porterville,” he said.

The Tule River once supplied the wells that have long since run dry. Now, the riverbed has turned into a dumping ground with not a drop of water to be found.

On Tuesday, working next to community showers in the Iglesia Emmanuel Church parking lot in the drought’s hardest-hit area in the state, Hernandez anxiously awaited a delivery he believes will make a big difference.

SEATTLE (Reuters) - Washington state Governor Jay Inslee declared a statewide drought emergency on Friday, saying drought conditions due to a lack of snowpack are some of the worst on record in a region normally known for its drizzly weather.

In an announcement in the state capital of Olympia, Inslee said the drought had "deepened dramatically in the past few weeks," with conditions expected to worsen as the hot summer months approach.

 

EDIT:  

California is enduring its worst drought on record, and that state's mountain snowpack, which usually provides about a third of the state's water, is at the lowest level on record, according to state officials. Drought emergencies have also been declared in parts of Oregon and Nevada.

L.A. getting no Owens Valley runoff for first time since 1913 

For the first time since 1913 -- when Department of Water and Power chief architect William Mulholland opened the waterway with the words, "There it is. Take it!" -- the 233-mile Los Angeles Aqueduct has stopped carrying Owens Valley runoff to Los Angeles..

Black market for water now thriving in California as ultra-rich pay huge premiums for covert water deliveries

(NaturalNews) Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink. This is quickly becoming the new state motto in California, where epic drought conditions are affecting even the highest echelons of society, including ultra-rich areas near Santa Barbara where celebrities, CEOs, and other "one-percenters" are now having to truck in water from unknown sources just to keep their laundry washed and their dishes clean.

Outside of the US, Spain & Portugal Just had their hottest months ever. North Korea is in drought & 80% of Queensland is in drought.
