Alabama Drought

The U.S. Drought Monitor Survey shows 73 percent of the state is
now under some stage of drought.

The Survey was released Thursday.

The worst category, D-2, covers approximately 2 percent of
Alabama, mainly in northeast counties.

The Monitor said D-1 or moderate drought conditions more than doubled in size and expanded toward Montgomery.

Experts said the expansion is due to dry conditions over the
past 30-90 days.

The survey also notes the "near record to record low levels"
of rivers and surface water storage areas across the Southeast
