U.S. Drought Monitor

Just how dry is it in Atlanta? Check out the U.S. Drought Monitor courtesy of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Maps show contours corresponding to the most abnormally dry areas of the U.S., indicating Atlanta plight is shared by Northern Alabama and the Carolinas. Animated maps show the progression of the drought over time.

Cool. Informative. Sobering.
