Rainfall from Tropical Depression Beryl has helped erase drought conditions in Eastern Carolina. In fact, for the first time in two years there is no drought in the state.
The rain last week eliminated the lingering moderate drought here in the East. Still, there are 36 central and southeastern counties with abnormally dry conditions.
But experts warn that conditions can quickly worsen because the state's hot summer months can bring about higher rates of evaporation.
