The California drought has become major news. It's even prompted national news media outlets, such as NBC, to call Kern County water districts more than once a day, in hopes of reporting the next severe drought story.

Wednesday on "First Look with Scott Cox," Californian columnist Lois Henry and Harry Starkey, manger of the West Kern Water District, talked about the drought and what the rain that began to fall Wednesday morning will mean for the state.

"It helps a little bit," Starkey said. "But we have lost so many water producing months, like January and February."

Starkey added it was "the story of survival on the west side of the country, especially with agriculture."
