New report shows drought getting worse

The latest survey from the U.S. Drought Monitor shows the drought is getting worse in Alabama, despite recent heavy rains in some parts of the state.

The D$ area representing exceptional drought conditions has grown from about 18 percent to cover more than 32 percent of the state.

The driest areas run from northeast Alabama to about Montgomery.

Climatologists also predict that the drought conditions will continue at least through October in north Alabama.
