Drought has hit California hard. There is barely any more water remaining, “the Golden State has depleted its water resources so much that it 'll all be gone in about one year”(Jay Famiglietti). This NASA scientist used satellites to figure out that most of our water sources are completely depleted. A few weeks ago, there was a huge fire called “The Valley Fire which scorched more than 76,000 acres across Lake, Napa and Sonoma counties, killed four civilians, injured four firefighters and destroyed nearly 2,000 buildings”(Kale Williams). The Valley Fire grew so fast, since there was a terrible amount of dry brush and trees, which easily caught the whole area on fire, and that’s also how the fire grew 10,000 acres over a few hours.
