We now officially have a drought in the NewsChannel 11 viewing area. The U.S. Drought Monitor's map of Texas shows Lubbock in yellow, which is abnormally dry. But if we look closer we can see Dickens and the area just southeast of Post are in the light brown which is mild drought.
But we're not nearly as bad as San Antonio which is surrounded by red and dark red to show extreme and exceptional drought.
