United States drought continues to decline nationally. This has been a monitored trend recently from the U.S. Drought Monitor.
Total area in drought is now down to 45.37% of the US from 51.19% in early March, according to the National Drought Mitigation Center.
This is based on the entire nation however, including data from Alaska, Hawai’i, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Marshall Islands, and American Samoa. Drought has expanded and continues to be exceptional for areas of the West and South. This is leading to unprecedented orders to cut water usage in southern California, including Los Angeles.
