Lubbock area drought expands

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A week ago only a portion of NewsChannel 11 viewing area faced drought or abnormally dry conditions. Except for a few outlying parts of the viewing area, everyone is either in moderate drought or abnormally dry according to the latest federal drought map. 

Parts of Texas near Austin and San Antonio have seen some but not total relief, as have parts of the Texas coast.  The new drought map does not yet reflect snow a few days ago in Lubbock and on the South Plains.
