Declares Drought State
January 17, 2014 8:27 PM
Saying that his state must take steps to plan for prolonged water shortages, Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency over an extended drought . California faces "water shortfalls in the driest year in recorded state history," according to the governor's office.
"We can't make it rain, but we can be much better prepared for the terrible consequences that California's drought now threatens, including dramatically less water for our farms and communities and increased fires in both urban and rural areas," Brown said. "I've declared this emergency and I'm calling all Californians to conserve water in every way possible."
Brown is urging residents to cut their water use by 20 percent, and he's telling state agencies to conserve water – and to hire more firefighters.

Strongest Storm in Four Years Hammers West Coast
this powerful Pacific storm covering the entire length of California knocked out power for thousands and threatened dangerous mudslides in communities near mountains stripped of protective foliage by drought-fueled wildfires.
Almost 3 inches of rain fell on downtown Los Angeles through Friday evening, more than double in one day the total of 1.2 inches it had gotten since July 1 — a stretch of nine months.
A nine-mile stretch of the Pacific Coast Highway was shut down until noon (3 p.m. ET) Friday because of the potential for rock and mudslides.
Evacuations Ordered as Mudslides, Floods Feared in California
Authorities ordered mandatory mudslide evacuations for more than 1,000 residents of several communities in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, which were expected to get as much as 8 inches of rain through Saturday — in an area where the Colby Fire in January destroyed ground cover and trees that could hold back the mud.
"It could come apart days from now or months from now," said Dave Malkoff, a meteorologist.
"If you choose to not heed those mandatory evacuations, you must understand something: As long as the mud is flowing, the fire department cannot get to you," Los Angeles County Assistant Fire Chief Steven Martin said.
