California’s second-largest reservoir Lake Oroville has begun to look like a shell of its usual self, as the western United States continues to experience intense drought. The reservoir has hit a record low level, dropping to 643.5 feet above sea level. Drone footage that was recently captured reveals the exposed shoreline surrounding the dam and lake, showing just how much this important reservoir has dried up. When the reservoir is at its full capacity, the surface of the lake stands at 900 feet above sea level.
