Rain VS. Drought

The rain broke records but only made a small impact on the Drought. Southerland Reservoir, east of Lake Wolfard, received more than the other county reservoirs, with two inches of rainfall. According to the director of San Diego’s Public Utilities, Halla Razak, those two inches will provide water for between 800 to 1200 families for a year. Razak also said it will take years of sustained precipitation and snowfall to get us out of the Drought.

The town of Ramona, one of the hardest hit areas of the recent storm, was busy with bulldozers removing mud from the area of San Diego Country Estates on Monday and a usually dry creek along Hwy 78 was temporarily turned into a river jammed with uprooted trees.
