Even with such precipitation, California would remain in drought conditions, due to low water supplies in reservoirs from the two previous dry years.
Drought conditions and a shortage of water can currently be found in many places throughout California.

The disease – now believed to be a form of viral hemorrhagic fever ravaged the area, leaving about thirty percent of the population behind it dead, in an area already stressed by drought. Simultaneously, a group of nomads that called themselves the Ryñiju arrived en masse from the northern savanna. It is unclear whether they brought the plague to the Hajon region, but they were certainly immune to it, as the disease was endemic to their homeland. The circumstances that led to a group of pastoralists overtaking a settled agricultural region are virtually a perfect storm of weakness. The area to the north, the Ryñiju homeland, had experienced a fertile period due to the same climactic pattern that caused the drought in the south, causing a population explosion that made the labor necessary for an invasion available. In addition, the drought and subsequent epidemic had stressed the desultory citystates along the river to a breaking point, causing an inability to effectively resist the invaders. This did not mean that there were not attempts, although everyone involved may have wished that that were the case. Among the earliest ever pieces of recovered writing is a tablet decrying the “depredations of the forces of the children of Mpanh, that rob the yeomanry to kill the barbarians, and in doing so alienate the peasants and make the cavalry more savage.” The actions of the remaining citystates to prevent the invasion likely had no larger effect than to give the Ryñiju public support. By 2900, the entire urbanized agricultural area around the Tsǎr Hajon had been united under the Ryñiju fist as the Tronhǎ Seön. There is something of a coda to this – the Ryñiju innovated much of future political thought in the region. In particular, they brought the idea of ruling based on military strength rather than religious authority. Also, their singleminded focus on securing further assets led to the rapid urbanization of the Tronhǎ Seön. However, one legacy of theirs that did not continue was unity – within, at most, fifty years, and perhaps as few as ten, the Tronhǎ Seön was a morass of squabbling petty kingdoms. 2700s: Citystates develop in Ligluduot Valley Ndereisi: Rendandaafolrereśendlicocalhucouswe Area 3 Cśesweśe The Ligluduot Valley (then called the Rendandaafolrere) is a large valley near the western tip of Rilyan. It is roughly Lshaped, funnelling rivers into the massive Tembiswe (later Tibisi), which continues northward before flowing into the threehundredkilometer Hwolsweyombiswe (later the Xulsiobisi), a massive canyon cutting through the Sweśekhatarou (later the Sisixatadu), a hilly region in the middle of Mbuśembirou. The Tembiswe eventually fans out into a wide delta, and its distributaries flow west into the ocean. In many ways, it is the heartland of the Ndalhurou. Since the advent of humanity in the region, the Ligluduot has been wellpopulated, due to its fertile land. Several centuries before the beginning of the period, the maintenance of gardens and grain storage for lean years became common practice. Huntergatherers would maintain them in permanent locations while spending most of their time hunting and gathering. At some point in the 2700s estimates say 2787 the volcano known as Kogu Dihkutisi erupted, plunging the western half of the continent into famine. It was not the first time it had erupted. It would not be the last. Those tribes that had larger amounts of food stored survived the volcanic winter better than those that did not. The tribes emerged from winter into a depopulated valley but those that survived grew stronger. The valley, made even more fertile by the addition of millions of tons of volcanic dust, became even more conducive to the development of agriculture, and thence came cities. The first known citystate was that of Ŋgilohwa, whose etymology is lost to history. It comprised several kilometers of territory along the Hwolsweyombiswe, later spreading out into the Rendandaafolrere and fracturing. Its legacy, the concept of a single authority in a single city controlling a vast hinterland (though the example of Ŋgilohwa showed that the reverse was also true), was one that would continue its primacy for a rather long time.
