Lake Lanier Hits Record Low

Atlanta's main source of drinking water has now sunk to its lowest level on record.

Lake Lanier's water level is below the lowest mark set more than 25-years ago.

The diminishing water is evidence of the severe drought gripping the Southeast.

The region has a rainfall deficit of about 20 inches and Lanier alone is more than 18 feet below normal level.
