Tens of thousands of plastic balls were dumped intentionally into the biggest reservoir in Los Angeles to combat California’s drought. The balls that poured in were the last of 96 million balls, completing an evaporation barrier on the reservoir. John Blackstone reports on how they could help the state bounce back from its water emergency.
Los Angeles is throwing shade at its water problem — literally. The city has deployed a total of 96 million "shade balls" into the LA Reservoir in an effort to save 300 million gallons of water. California is currently in the midst of its worst drought on record, and all hands are on deck to conserve the state's precious water supply. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, for its part, is contributing to the effort by rolling out thousands of small, black plastic balls to protect water quality by "preventing sunlight-triggered chemical reactions, deterring birds and other wildlife, and protecting water from rain and wind-blown dust," according to a press release from LA Mayor Eric Garcetti. http://www.mashable.com LIKE us on FACEBOOK: http://facebook.com/mashable.video FOLLOW ...

More from Inside Edition: http://bit.ly/2bF0iuC A YouTube video of a child named Rocco and his 20-year-old nanny riding in the bed of a pickup truck in California filled with Orbeez (water and gel based plastic balls) led authorities to issue charges against two adults. Police said in a release the video showed "dangerous driving behavior involving children." In the video, the balls are later dumped out of the back of the truck for fun. They naturally rolled down the street and eventually clogged storm drains and triggered a major cleanup operation.

In a bid to conserve water in drought-hit California 96 million black plastic 'shade-balls' have been placed in a reservoir in Los Angeles.

California in the midst of one of its most severe droughts in history, has turned to a curious method to preserve water: plastic balls. Some 96 million four-inch black plastic orbs, called "shade balls," have been released into the 175-acre Los Angeles Reservoir, located about 25 miles northwest of downtown, to shade and cool the water, making it less susceptible to algae blooms and evaporation. The Los Angeles Reservoir, which holds 3.3 billion gallons of water, or enough to supply the city for three weeks, is among three others in the state already covered with shade balls. http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2015/08/13/California-shade-balls-used-to-combat-historic-drought/2901439469390/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

November 6, 2013, 11:20 p.m. The flashes and bright lights that were reported across Central and Southern California on Wednesday night likely were long-lasting meteor streams known as the South Taurids, according to the National Weather Service. The Taurids are known for having exceptionally bright meteors. On Wednesday night, people used Twitter to describe what resembled a meteor shower, bright lights or fireballs in the sky. Mary Slosson said she driving eastbound on the 10 Freeway when saw a "flareup" that "looked like something burning up upon entry into atmosphere" over the Culver City area. The flash of light caused drivers to hit their brakes and swerve to catch a glimpse, Slosson said. Another person in Hollywood said he saw what appeared to be a "pretty substantial firebal...
