Drought Forces California Power Plant Offline

(Lake Oroville, CA)  --  A major California hydroelectric power plant is offline amid record drought.  Water levels at Lake Oroville have fallen to extreme lows, forcing the Hyatt Power Plant to shut down for the first time since it opened in 1967.  Officals say climate change has made the drought worse, significantly reducing water runoff into reservoirs this year.  Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom asked Californians last month to cut household water use by 15 percent, while power grid officials are asking residents to conserve electricity to avoid blackouts.
