Severe drought conditions continue to make its way East. Since our last drought update, Onslow, Jones and parts of northern Craven and eastern Beaufort counties. Extreme drought conditions have moved back into Nash and eastern Wilson county. Those under a moderate drought include Dare, Hyde, Washington, Tyrrell, Pamlico and Carteret.
Today's rainfall totaled from a quarter to a half inch in most areas. Any little bit helps but we could desperately use a lot more.
