California’s Central Valley Sinking Faster Than Ever Before As Farmers Drill For Water During Drought
California’s Central Valley is sinking at a rate never before seen during the state’s historic drought, and farmers are shouldering some of the blame for the damage that sinking is causing.
A North Bay high school is close to putting the finishing touches on a multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art swimming pool, with one exception – there is no water available to fill it because of the drought. But now, a former student is stepping up to provide a solution.
A law enforcement official says surveillance video from San Jose International Airport shows the boy who survived a flight to Hawaii in a plane’s wheel well was on the airfield seven hours before the jet departed.
A teenager who stowed away in the wheel well of an airplane for a five-hour flight from California to Hawaii is resting at a Honolulu hospital.
A convicted California serial killer whose maps have led authorities to hundreds of human bone fragments has apparently revealed the location of a third well where he says a victim can be found.
Crews were again using a large backhoe to search a rural well where a convicted killer said he and a friend dumped several bodies during a murder spree known as the Speed Freak Killings.
The effort is focused in an area where a convicted serial killer said there might be 10 or more victims from a methamphetamine-fueled killing spree he and a childhood friend were part of in the 1980s and 1990s.
The abundance of ground water after the heavy rainfall in 2010 and 2011, and the success of conservation efforts, has ironically led the Santa Clara Valley Water District to try and raise rates to make up for lower demand.
