Start Date: 8/7/2017 - End Date: 8/7/2017
Edgecombe County--Soil is dry even with the rain today. Several streams are dried up and creeks are low. A pond on Horton Road is almost out of water. Soybeans are getting hit hard by drought and farmers are trying to keep them watered. Nash County--Soil is dry. Tar River is low but flowing. Leaves are falling due to trees needing more water to survive the drought. Nurseries have to water plants more to keep them alive to sell. Stony Creek is low and has a few dry spots of dirt showing.
