Local officials are keeping their eyes on a tropical storm in Florida with mixed emotions.
Tropical Storm Fay hit the Florida Keys on Monday afternoon. The storm could bring needed rain to the parched Carolinas, but it could also further damage the burned Lancaster County Courthouse.
"We really hope this tropical storm can drop some rain on us," said Mike Bailes, director of the Catawba River Water Treatment Plant. "Our groundwater is worse than it was this time last year."
Lancaster County is still about 17 inches behind on rain since the drought began last year.
