Southeast U.S. Parched by Continuing Drought

A drought has severely depleted water resources in the Southeast, and reservoir levels are so low that the governor of Georgia has declared a water supply emergency in the northern part of the state. Guests discuss the impact the drought has had on the region and how the crisis is being managed.

Guests:

Susana Capelouto, news director, Georgia Public Radio

Brian Fuchs, climatologist specialist at the National Drought Mitigation Center and author, United States Drought Monitor
