More than 100 people with the Muslim Community of Folsom prayed for rain during an event at Folsom Lake Saturday, reported the Los Angeles Time. 

The event came as officials across California have been expressing concern about drought-like conditions.

For example, downtown Los Angeles had the driest year since 1877, when official measurements began.

Only 3.6 inches of rain has fallen at the National Weather Service station at USC since Jan. 1, about half an inch less than was recorded in 1953 and 1947, which until now had tied for the lowest rainfall.

The Northern California event came at Folsom Lake, which has been receding to new record levels.
