Parts Of South Dakota Now In Exceptional Drought
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The southeastern corner of South Dakota and a small portion of the state's southwest have slipped into exceptional drought over the past week.

Conditions have not worsened as much in North Dakota. About 20 percent of the state is in severe drought, compared to 17 percent last week. None of North Dakota is suffering from extreme or exceptional drought.
