California's historic drought

This picture taken from a helicopter shows a drought-affected area near Los Altos Hills, California, on Wednesday, July 23. One of California's worst droughts in decades could cost the state's farmers $1.7 billion, a recent study warned. The drought could leave 14,500 workers without jobs in California's Central Valley, known as America's food basket for providing vast supplies of fruit, vegetables and meat.
