MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The latest national report on the drought shows that the worst conditions in Alabama continue to be in the state’s northeast corner.

The U.S. Drought Monitor released Thursday shows that extreme drought continues in most of Jackson County, along with portions of Madison and DeKalb counties.

The report shows that areas of severe drought persist in several Alabama counties along the Mississippi line, and also several counties along the Georgia line.

The U.S. Drought Monitor is produced through a partnership between the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the federal government.
