BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Heavy rainfall across Alabama this week
did little to relieve the state's drought situation.
The U.S. Drought Monitor report, released Thursday, showed a
still mostly dry Alabama recovering from years of drought.
The survey found 73 percent of the state remain under some stage of drought.
That's only a 9 percent decrease from the previous
Northeast Alabama remains the most parched region of the state.
The area is still under D-2 or severe drought classification. It
represents about 1 percent of the state.
According to the Monitor, approximately 5 percent of the Southeast is also under D-2 status.
