RALEIGH An assessment of drought conditions released Thursday estimates
that more than 80 percent of the state is abnormally dry. Parts of
North Carolina from Charlotte to Raleigh face the worst conditions
while coastal counties are considered fine.
North Carolina has grown increasingly parched over the last
month due to a lack of significant rainfall. The North Carolina
Drought Management Advisory Council recommends that people who live
in areas of severe drought eliminate nonessential uses of water.
Council chairman Woody Yonts says water supplies are OK right now.
Dry conditions now cover much of the South.
