Hall now drought-free

All of Hall County is now drought-free as are all adjacent counties except for tiny portions of Dawson and Lumpkin, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor’s (USDM) weekly update.

Drought conditions which persisted in 25 percent of the state a week ago and half of it at the end of October now cover about ten percent. Another round of steady rains recently on the heels of torrential rains a couple of weeks ago contributed to the improved conditions.

As of today, the drought is now concentrated in the northwest corner of Georgia in all or parts of about 20 counties.
