It is Going to Take a Crazy Amount of Rain to End the California Drought



SoCal has been getting hit with rain for several days now…but it is going to take a whole lot more of the wet stuff to end the drought.

While The Coachella Valley has not seen much rain out of the storms (Palm Springs reported .63 inches, Desert Hot Springs had .28 inches, and most eastern cities had less than a tenth of an inch.), the rest of SoCal has been getting drenched – with San Bernardino County getting a whopping 7.52 inches of rain!

But, according to ABC 7, it is not nearly enough to end the drought:

State water experts said it would take 150 percent of the normal annual rainfall for California to recover from the current drought. That would mean a total of 75 inches of rain from Oct. 1, 2014, through Sept. 30, 2015, recorded at eight stations in the northern Sierra.

That is a lot of rain. Come on El Niño!!!
