The President called to get an update on the dry conditions, as 17 communities are in danger of running out of water within four months.

The White House says the President told Brown the federal government will keep working to support California's response to the drought.

The White House says the National Drought Resilience Partnership is coordinating the federal response.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Agriculture Department are involved in the effort.
