When The Well Runs Dry - 23 Oct 2014
Reuters Photographer Lucy Nicholson travelled to southern California to document the struggle faced by people whose water supply has run dry. In one of the towns hardest hit by California's drought, the only way some residents can get water to flush the toilet is to drive to the fire station, hand-pump water into barrels and take it back home. The state's three-year drought comes into sharp focus in Tulare County, the dairy and citrus heart of the state's vast agricultural belt, where more than 500 wells have dried up.
