Drought watch

With regular rain over the past three months, it's hard to imagine that the Triangle is still in a drought.

But it's true. Many of the area's reservoirs are still below normal. And according to the North Carolina Drought Management Advisory Council, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Orange, Person and Wake counties are still in a moderate drought.

But the end of the drought may be nigh. The lake levels are on the rebound.

LAKE MICHIE: 340.18 feet above sea level. The lake is considered full at 341 feet.

LITTLE RIVER RESERVOIR: 354.37 feet above sea level. The reservoir is considered full at 355 feet.

RALEIGH
