AP PHOTOS: Neighbors fill buckets, pray for rain in drought

Yahoo! National News - 8 hours 32 min ago

In this June 30, 2015 photo, Tino Lozano looks into a bucket as the last of his available well water drips from a hose in front of his home in the community of Okieville, on the outskirts of Tulare, Calif. "There it goes. That was all," said Lozano, masking his desperation with a smile. "That's how we do it in Okieville now." Millions of Californians are being inconvenienced in this fourth year of drought, but it's worse in places like Okieville, where wells have gone dry for many in the Central Valley community which was built by refugees from Oklahoma's epic Dust Bowl drought. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull)OKIEVILLE, Calif. (AP) — People living in this dusty neighborhood called Okieville at the heart of California's Central Valley know the harsh reality of drought. Many of their wells have dried up, so some neighbors rig lines from house to house to share water from the remaining wells deep enough to hit water. Others benefit from state drought relief that pays for trucked-in water to fill tanks.

In this June 30, 2015 photo, Gilbert Arredondo, left, looks down as he talks about his town's water crisis, standing in front of his tenant's sons, in the community of Okieville, on the outskirts of Tulare, Calif. Arredondo had just informed his tenant, Tino Lozano, that the well connecting their houses had gone dry. The water is disappearing at a particularly alarming pace in their neighborhood, forcing neighbors to rig lines from house to house to share what underground water is still reachable from the deepest wells. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull)TULARE, Calif. (AP) — Looking for water to flush his toilet, Tino Lozano pointed a garden hose at some buckets in the bare dirt of his yard. It's his daily ritual now in a community built by refugees from Oklahoma's Dust Bowl. But only a trickle came out; then a drip, then nothing more.
