California is drought-free now

According to the National Drought Mitigation Center,”California is drought-free. Storms continued to pile on snowpack and fill California’s water reservoirs over the past week, pulling even more of the state out of drought”.

We have seen hail in the year 1997. After 22 years again in 2019, hail was reported in San Jose, California. I barely remember, I guess in the month of June 1997(Don’t remember the month).
