Napa, Calif.—The magnitude-6 earthquake that shook the Napa Valley on Aug. 24 was the strongest the region had felt in more than 20 years. But the next earthquake in the area could be much stronger, according to preliminary research the University of California, Davis, presented this week at the American Geophysical Union conference in San Francisco, Calif.

California Remains in Drought
 
12.17.2014
 
But grapegrowers encouraged as recent rainstorms bring reservoirs to half average levels
 
“nasa
 
Jay Famiglietti from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., used data from a NASA satellite to analyze the drought in California.
Napa, Calif.—With heavy storms just past, California expects more rain this week. It won’t end the drought, but it will certainly help: “Before the rainy pattern takes a break, cumulative rainfall will have taken a huge slice out of the long-term drought,” said AccuWeather.com meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

The biggest rains came Dec. 11, when an average of 2.5 inches of rain fell across the state and far more fell on some areas: Northern Sonoma County received almost 5 inches in a day, sending a massive surge down the Russian River.

Nevertheless, the California Department of Water Resources estimates the state will need six more storms like this to fill its 12 major reservoirs and bring an end to the long-term drought. “We’re a long way from the precipitation levels needed to get us out of a drought,” said spokesman Doug Carlson. “ We need to get 150% of normal rainfall to make a dent in the state’s water shortage.”
