Drought worsening in S.A. area

My San Antonio News, 11/07/2008

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor, released Thursday, puts Bexar County into the “extreme drought” category for the first time since mid-August.

Extreme drought, the second-to-worst category, has spread from 5 percent of Texas to 6.8 percent since last Thursday, according to the Drought Monitor. That's a 36 percent increase.
