The record low water level at lake Mead

In this video, I revisit Hoover dam to take some pictures and video, go on a tour and to take a look at the record low water level that has triggered a “level 1 water shortage declaration”. I compare the water level between a visit in late 2013 and early 2016.

It has been many years since the water level was this low and some fear that Lake Mead will dry up in the drought. So lets go check out the low water level and go on a tour.
I went there in the morning and got a chance to do a bit of quick time lapse of the Mustang before all the other tourists arrived after which I walked around and took some footage of the low water level. It looks like it is drying up but let’s compare it with my earlier recordings.
