state water managers conducted their final snow survey of the season this week. and the news is bleak. to say the least. kron 4's charles clifford has details. on thursday morning, just off highway 50, not far from lake tahoe, a snow survey team with the california department of water resources found 0 inches of snow at phillips station. a month ago, this same spot was a winter wonderland, but now these fields are dry and only small patches of fading snow linger amongst the trees. the little bit of snow that is scattered in and amongst the trees is the results of the storm last friday. prior to that that snow would not have been here either. the situation isn't much better any where else in california. in the northern sierra the snowpack is at just 7 percent of
8:45 pm
average for this time of year, it's at 24 percent in the central sierra and the southern sierra has only 18 percent. when that meager amount of snow melts, it won't be nearly enough to refill california's already depleted rivers and reservoirs. it's clearly been a very disappointing year in term of any water supply recovery coming off dry years last year and the year before. now we are very concerned of course about what might happen next season. also on thursday, the us drought monitor released an updated map of drought condition across the country. here in california, our dry conditions have remained unchanged from last week. about a quarter of the state, including five counties here in the bay area, are dealing with exceptionally dry conditions. in san francisco, charles clifford kron 4 news. more than one thousand teens crowded into mansion under construction in ontario, canada saturday night. they trashed the place before police broke up the party. calivin to has the story.

back to normal but the house looks like it survived a natural disaster. everything is completely trashed, broken windows, stair railings are broken. outside, the grounds are littered with filth. beer cans, cell phones the remains of a night gone wild. in total, 70- thousand dollars worth of damage. and no doubt a post party hangover one homeowner won't soon forget. an investigation is now on going, police are looking to hear from neighbors about possible property damage, in the meantime it's too early to tell right now if there will be any charges against the homeowner or her son. another big theme for today is going to be putting people first. this blue banner that we often

we gave you a sneak peek last night of this year's white house correspondents' dinner community's joel mchale hosted the event. and he held nothing back. scott thompson highlights some of the evening's best one- liners. washington's annual white house correspondents' dinner was held saturday night. the event has been hailed as the "nerd prom" and draws famous faces in politics, journalism, hollywood and sports. unsurprisingly, the botched healthcare-dot-gov rollout was this year's hot topic. we rolled out, that could've gone better. in 2008, my slogan was "yes we can," in 2013 my slogan was "control alt delete." "mr. president you have to admit, and you already have, the launch of was a disaster. it was so bad. it was bad. i don't even have an

analogy because the website is now the thing people use to describe other bad things." john boehner's tan was roasted. "right now, joe is elbow deep in jalapeno poppers and talking to a construction cone he thinks is john boehner." "these days, the house republicans actually give john boehner a harder time than they give me, which means orange really is the new black. president obama took fox news to task. let's face it fox, you're going to miss me when i'm gone. it'll be harder to convince the american people that hillary was born in kenya." and mchale addressed the gender pay gap. hillary clinton has a lot going for her as a candidate. she has experience, she's a natural leader, and as our first female president, we could pay her 30 percent less. that's a savings this country could use! i'm scott thompson reporting. may the fourth be with you.
