(Studio) Rain in north California, Oregon and Washington today does little to relieve drought.
REPORTER: Morton Dean

(Detroit Reservoir, OR) Situation in Oregon noted. [OR Governor Robert STRAUB - notes effect of drought; says summer will bring severe unemployment.] Lack of snow hurts more than ski resorts, because melting runoffs usually fill reservoirs in lowlands and without it they'll run dry. Water tables in area noted. [MAN - cites storm pattern in Pacific, up to Canadian Rockies and down across eastern US.] Effects of drought on agriculture, forest ind. and fishing industry noted. Small town covered by Detroit Reservoir can now be seen. Forecast for next 30 days is for below normal rainfall.
