DROUGHT STATUS

COLUMBIA --- Extreme drought conditions now cover about one-fourth of South Carolina.

The state Drought Response Committee on Tuesday added Anderson, Abbeville, Greenwood, Laurens, Union, Newberry, Saluda, Edgefield and McCormick counties to the list in the extreme designation.

The committee recommended that water systems in those counties tell their customers to voluntarily and aggressively cut water consumption.
