MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Rains from the remnants of Hurricane Humberto did not provide relief for the drought that has ruined crops and dropped lake levels to near record lows in Alabama and Georgia.
An Army Corps of Engineers official says the rains from Humberto last week provided only "limited" relief along the river systems in Alabama and Georgia, where the Corp controls water flow.
Charles Stover of Alabama Power says water levels on Alabama Power lakes have already returned to the near record lows recorded
before the storm.
The comments were made during a weekly drought teleconference conducted by officials from the Corp, utilities and local and state officials.
