Drought Not Only Affecting Land Farmers

Nancy Sugg who runs Castle Mayne Farms in Aurora says hot temperatures and lack of rain to cool her ponds may cause machinery to break down.

That would cost more money to raise her bass.

Although Sugg says most farm raised fish are shipped up north to New York and Canada, there's a chance you could feel the pinch at your local supermarket.

Parts of Eastern North Carolina are about eight inches below average rainfall amounts in 2007.
