Drought dries up Orange County's only natural lake

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Orange County's only natural lake is now a cracked bed of soil with only a few puddles.

The drought has dried up the once luscious, 12-acre Barbara's Lake in Laguna Beach.

The lake's disappearance is not only disappointing hikers, but taking a serious toll on wildlife.

Reporter Greg Lee has the details in the video above.
