The drought conditions cover most of the east coast and have been developing for more than three years. The winter season will usually recharge the water table but we've seen very little snow cover.

Jackson's charged with three counts of mail fraud and three counts of wire fraud.
He also faces three counts of bank fraud... Prosecutors say he falsely stated on loan applications that he was employed at Virginia Western Community College.
Jackson has been in federal custody since his arrest in November and is being evaluated to determine his competency to stand trial.

Fire Safety Products conducts tests on tanks used as air packs, dive tanks and C-O-2 fire extinguishers. But federal court documents indicate Fire Safety Products routinely "dry stamped" cylinders, approving them for re-use, withOUT performing hydrostatic and visual inspections. Because they're subject to high pressure, the cylinders can rupture if they're not properly inspected.
