WASH. — Extreme dry conditions continue to impact our region and now the Department of Ecology has issued its first-ever drought advisory for most of the state of Washington.
The advisory was issued last month to increase awareness of the conditions and encourage people to pay attention to their personal water supplies.
It includes all areas east of the Cascade Mountains, portions of Southwest Washington and the Washington coast.
According to the Department of Ecology, March through April was the fourth driest period in Washington state since 1895. (More on drought advisory)
