KINGS COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- Images from NASA show the revival of Tulare Lake after months of relentless rainfall in Central California.
In Kings County, floodwaters are covering a large area of agricultural land in the Tulare Lake Basin.
Photos captured by the NASA Earth Observatory between March 2 and April 1 show a huge increase in water in the once-dry lake.

The water levels in the basin are something the area hasn't seen in nearly four decades.
Rivers that used to run into the basin were diverted in the 1980s, leaving the land in the basin to be used for agricultural fields.
Before it went dry, the lake was known in the late 1800s as the largest freshwater lake in the western United States.
The flooded areas of Kings County are expected to stay underwater into this summer.
