Drought conditions continue in many areas of the United States, with well-below-normal streamflows reported during April in parts of 42 states, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

USGS hydrologists said that half of the 166 key index stations reporting in April showed streamflow within the lowest 25% of record. New record low levels for the month were set in parts of Maine, New York, Virginia, North Carolina, Wyoming, and New Mexico. Deficient flows have been reported throughout portions of the Midwest and East since early last summer.
