The storms that hit California in early 2023 provided glimpses of hope as the severe draught up and down the state dropped water levels to shocking all-time lows.

While the large fronts that began at the start of the year have caused flooding and massive amounts of snowfall at the higher elevations—which left thousands stranded with little to no help—it has combated the worrisome draughts.

And few areas highlighted the drastic change more than Lake Oroville, the state’s second-largest reservoir.
