Q: Is Texas still undergoing the worst drought in recorded history?

A: The 2011 drought was the worst one-year drought in recorded history.  As of early April 2012, only portions of the state are experiencing any form of drought. North central, central, and east Texas have been cleared of the drought due to recent rains in February and March. However, parts of west Texas, the Panhandle, and south Texas continue to endure extreme or exceptional drought conditions.
