AUSTIN -- Governor Perry has extended the drought declaration for much of Texas.
That declaration says the drought conditions are putting many counties in danger.
It was originally made back on July 5, 2011.
The declaration frees up federal funding to help out with the drought.
The following counties are part of the drought declaration:
Armstrong, Bailey, Briscoe, Carson, Castro, Childress, Collingsworth, Cottle, Dallam, Deaf Smith, Donley, Hale, Hansford, Hardeman, Hartley, Hemphill, Hutchinson, Lipscomb, Moore, Motley, Ochiltree, Oldham, Parmer, Potter, Randall Roberts, Sherman, Swisher, and Wheeler.
