California drought causes officials to cut off water supply to many residents

The L.A. Times reported that in an unprecedented move, state officials announced on Friday January 31 that beginning this spring, the state reservoir will effectively be closed for business.  For the first time in its 54-year history, the State Water Project, a backbone of California’s water system, will provide no water to millions of urban residents or farmers this year because of the severe drought. “This is the most serious drought we’ve faced in modern times,” Felicia Marcus, chairwoman of the State Water Resources Control Board, told the Associated Press. “We need to conserve what little we have to use later in the year, or even in future years.” California is in its third straight year of drought conditions, with 2014 as the driest year on record — setting the stage for disastrous consequences for people, animals and the environment. “We expect hundreds of thousands of acres of land in the Central Valley to go unplanted,” said Paul Wenger, president of the California Farm Bureau Federation. “That will cause severe economic problems in our rural regions — loss of jobs and economic activity, with all the heartache that entails.” More

    California has led the nation in embracing, and legislating, wickedness. Is it any wonder that HaShem is withholding His life giving rain? Keep worshiping immoral Hollywood, embracing homosexuality, Paganism, infanticide, and electing wicked people to positions of power. You have kicked GOD out of your state. Apparently, He has left, and He has taken his blessings with Him. As expected, Satan has filled the void. How’s life under his satanic lash? “Adios California!” Massachusetts, your next!
