I read with interest this story on AccuWeather.com saying that 100% of California is now officially in "Moderate/Severe/Extreme/Exceptional" drought.
According to the Drought Monitor, this has happened before when also considering the lowest "Slight" index as drought (in 2002, 2007-2009 and 2013). However, when you remove those in the Slight, "D0" area, you can see that this much of a moderate to exceptional drought has not occurred since the year 2000, when records began. The higher you climb up the scale, the more you depart from past records.
