Drought Fueling Fires
Florida's rainy season has been a bit of a bust this year.
Until we get precipitation, North Central Florida will continue to see severe drought conditions throughout the area.
Usually Florida's Forest Service regroups during the summer months and let's mother nature put out any lingering wildfires from the spring.
This year they continue to see active conditions and while they are not fighting a lot of wildfires, the one's they are battling are dangerous.
Most of the smoke we are seeing in our area is coming from the Long Tram Fire burning in Union County and the Honey Prairie Fire burning in Georgia.
