California Drought
FILE - In this Friday, Feb. 14, 2014, file photo, morning traffic makes it's way toward downtown Los Angeles along the Hollywood Freeway past an electronic sign warning of severe drought. Los Angeles has concluded another rain season with little to show for it. The National Weather Service says just 6.08 inches of rain was recorded downtown between July 1, 2013, and June 30. That's less than half the normal average of 14.93 inches and enters the books as the seventh-driest rain season since record-keeping began downtown in 1877. The previous rain season was worse, just 5.85 inches. (AP Photo/Richard Vogel, File)
