MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A new report shows that extreme drought conditions are continuing in parts of Alabama - especially in the state’s northeast corner.

The U.S. Drought Monitor released Thursday shows extreme drought conditions across most of Jackson County and parts of Madison and DeKalb counties.

The report shows smaller pockets of extreme drought conditions along the Mississippi and Georgia state lines.

The report indicates that severe drought conditions exist in larger areas across northern Alabama, northwest Alabama and eastern Alabama.

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.
