Drought Emergency Alert_2

Maine’s Drought Task Force says conditions are getting worse, with little relief on the way.

Since the task force met two weeks ago, the area in severe drought has grown to 42 percent of the state.

It now covers parts of Penobscot, Piscataquis, Somerset and Washington Counties in addition to Aroostook County.

That area has been in severe drought for more than seven weeks.

While above-normal precipitation is expected in the next 6 to 10 days, conditions may still get worse.
