Drought Information Statement
National Weather Service Morristown TN
100 PM EDT Thu May 4 2017

...Severe Drought /D2/ Conditions Are No Longer Occurring...

Synopsis...The latest U.S. Drought Monitor valid May 2nd shows the
Severe Drought /D2/ impacted area has been removed from Clay County
NC. Persistent rainfall this year, and a particularly wet April,
have brought enough improvement that no part of the area is under
the Severe Drought /D2/ category any longer.

This will be the final drought statement issued by the National
Weather Service Office in Morristown TN until Severe Drought /D2/
conditions return anywhere in our area.
