Extra Edition: New Drought Measures (Repeat Program.)

Local water agencies are now required to reduce water use up to 20 percent. Today, counties in Southern California begin emergency restrictions to water usage. What are the areas under extreme drought? What are the new conservation measures? What’s the opinion from potentially-impacted residents?
