Recent rainfall turning drought woes around
AUSTIN, TX — Although the recent storms have turned deadly, the rainfall is helping turn the state's drought woes around.
Roughly half the state is now in a drought, but that's a huge improvement from just four months ago when more than 75 percent of the state was experiencing drought conditions.
Much of Texas has received near to above normal rainfall over the last four months. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, most of the Valley ranges from moderate to extreme drought.
