More NC Water Systems Struggling

The number of North Carolina water systems nearing a drought crisis has nearly tripled in a week.

Woody Yonts of the Drought Management Advisory Council says 17
water systems would have water for less than 100 days. That's up
from six last week.

Raleigh tops the list based on population. Durham, Monroe and Boone also are among the highest.
