People who have left California for the rest of the year are not leaving California anymore, according to a new report.
The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday that more than 11,000 people who left California to visit family and friends in January have left the state in February and March.
More than 6,000 of those people are believed to be staying in hotels, according the report.
About 5,800 people left California in March alone, and about 1,500 of those are expected to stay in hotels this year, according The Times.
The Times reported that most of those leaving California for good are people who had left California during the California wildfires that killed nearly 8,000 residents in January and February.
More than 10,000 Californians have died from the wildfires, which destroyed thousands of homes, businesses, and schools.
