Oregon continues to dry out. The latest numbers from the USDA show 66% of the state is under the Severe Drought, or D2, Designation. That marks an 11 point jump in the past week. The location with the best water numbers remains, the NE corner of the state, which is considered abnormally dry for the year.
Meanwhile in Washington, only 7% of the state is under the D2 designation, all of which is the southwest corner of the state.
