Slightly more than ten percent of Texas is now officially out of drought after recent rainfall across the state. It makes the first time in over a year that drought numbers have dipped below 90%. Rains over the past week brought relief to many areas of the state, with 10.1% of the state out of drought, up from 6.98% last week.

The last time drought percentages were this low was in February 2011, with 12.5 percent of the state showing no drought. Although 89.9% of the state is still declaring drought, severe drought statistics are down from 20.5 percent to 17.9 percent. It is estimated the past year of drought has cost a record $7.6 billion in livestock and crop losses.
