State Still in Drought Conditions
(2008-08-15)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Despite beneficial rainfall this week across much of the state, the U.S. Drought Monitor Survey released Thursday shows parts of Alabama slipping deeper into drought.

Two areas of the state, a 50 mile circle across northwest Alabama centered in Marshall County, and another wide swath from Bibb County almost to the Georgia line are listed as D-3 or severe conditions.

Overall, D-3 conditions - the second worst on the scale - cover about 15 percent of the state. That's a 4 percent increase from last week.

The Monitor said only about 3 percent of Alabama is untouched by drought conditions.
