California continues to experience a water emergency. State officials conducted a survey in the High Sierra on Monday to update the depth and water content of the snowpack. They say California is 40 percent short of the water needed by next month to fill the state's reservoirs. The governor declared a drought emergency on Friday, urging people to cut back on water use.
