Lack of water a serious threat in US
Above-average snowfall has soothed drought worries for some states, but for others in the Southwest, the lack of water is still a serious threat.
Areas in New Mexico, Utah, Arizona and Nevada are of particular concern to officials, who said yesterday, March 16, that prolonged drought will cause serious problems in coming years.
This drought has been going on for several years now, and here in L.A., we got little rain during our rainy season. Not that it matters, as our water comes from hundreds of miles away, often from different states. Is this a sustainable model? No.
