SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Drought conditions have eased slightly in the Dakotas over the past week.

The situation remains dire in South Dakota, however, with just under 57 percent of the state in the two worst categories of drought, extreme and exceptional. Last week, slightly more than 57 percent of the state was in those two categories. All of the state is in some form of drought.

About 95 percent of North Dakota is in some category of drought, but the state no longer has any areas in extreme drought. Last week, about 5 percent of the state was in that category.
