Severe Drought Spreads To More Counties

Severe drought conditions have spread to even more Eastern Carolina counties, that from the latest drought map out this morning.

Eighteen counties now fall under the designation, including Beaufort, Camden, Carteret, Craven, Currituck, Dare, Duplin, Hyde, Jones, Onslow, Pamlico, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell and Washington counties.

The rest of our area remains under moderate drought conditions.

Severe is in the middle range of the five levels of drought.
