DroughtWatch: Another week, more relief

The latest map from the United States Drought Monitor reveals another week of major changes as the five-year old California drought continues to fade. This week’s biggest change came in the Severe Drought category, which fell by nearly half.

All told, 41.46 percent of the Golden State is now free of the drought, with all of the North official relieved, though the drought remains in the Central Valley and at its strongest in Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles counties.
