California Drought Designs

I found this series of California drought map sequences on the Los Angeles Times website tonight and was immediately taken with it.  It is a visual hook for a fascinating interactive drought map HERE. Dark red represents Abnormally Dry zones. Bright red represents zones of Moderate Drought. Orange signifies zones of Severe Drought. Tan represents zones of Extreme Drought. Yellow represents zones of Exceptional Drought. The first row of images starts in September 2012 and ends in January 2013. The second row starts in August 2013 and ends in November 2013. The third row starts in March 2014 and ends in July 2014. The drought has since deepened with only good news for some mountain and desert regions since then due to the summer monsoon.
