California Drought Data
What is a drought? A Drought is an extended period of time with significantly lower than expected rainfall. California is in the midst of a multi-year drought.
Reservoirs that hold water for agriculture, household use, and industry, as well as for supporting the state’s flora and fauna are at historically low levels. There are reservoirs in other states that supply water to California which are also running low – Lake Meade and Lake Powell. For this presentation, we will focus on the California reservoirs. This leads to a variety of problems including lost crops, damaged ecosystems, water rationing and many others.
This storyboard has been created to present the data in an informative and interactive manner using a software program called Tableau Public. Many graphs, images, lists and other parts of this storyboard are clickable so try it !
