What's our Drought Status?

Recent rains have raised the lake levels, but it still has a long way to go before it returns to 'full-pond.' There is good news though. Southwest Virginia has moved to a 'DO' drought condition or 'abnormally dry' ...and it is on the verge of returning to normal! The month of March received 25% more precipitation than in recent years. If weather patterns continue to bring us ample rain, we we will no longer be in drought status.

Keep the rain coming!
