Following Historically Severe Drought, California Is Inundated With Massive Storms

Source: KLa Systems

Following a year that was marked by drastic, historic drought conditions, California was hit with winter storms and widespread snow that dramatically shifted its ongoing battle against water scarcity.

“In the mountains, the atmospheric rivers have been more akin to atmospheric avalanches over the Sierra Nevada, with yards of snow piling up higher than they have in years,” AccuWeather reported. “An even more staggering amount of snow has fallen at the summit of [Mammoth Mountain], which reaches an elevation of 11,053 feet. If the Statue of Liberty was removed from its pedestal and placed at the top of Mammoth Mountain, the total snow amount would be approaching its waist.”
