Northeast Iowa remains wettest part of the state

More than half of the state is considered to be in drought or some type of dry condition. Tim Hall of the Iowa D-N-R says the wettest part of the state remains in the northeast corner of Iowa. He says the dry conditions have been spreading to the east and could eventually hit there too.

But Hall says the northeast Iowa area is sitting pretty good right now.

Hall says were are starting to run out of the wettest portion of the year and the other counties will have a hard time catching back up.

Northeast Iowa got a lot of the extra rain early this year as part of the rare aftermath of a tropical storm that reached the state.
