Better! - 86 counties have normal moisture; 2 are normal to abnormally dry, 1 is abnormally dry to moderate drought, 4 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 9 states (Michigan, Kentucky, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, West Virginia and Alaska - and the territory of Puerto Rico) have normal moisture levels. Puerto Rico still has very little electricity and clean drinking water. Click on the image to see how Nebraska compares to other states.
