Better! - 82 counties have normal moisture; 5 are normal to abnormally dry, only 1 is abnormally dry, 2 are abnormally dry to moderate drought, 3 range from normal to moderate drought with abnormally dry areas as well.There are no severe drought conditions anywhere in our state. However - the southwest panhandle is facing long term abnormally dry to moderate drought conditions, meaning the dry spell lasts more than six months. Nationally only Florida and Alaska - and the territory of Puerto Rico have normal moisture levels. Peurto Rico still has no power and very little clean drinking water.
