There's a new move to ease drought conditions in parts of Georgia, Alabama and Florida.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials have said they will release more water from Lake Lanier and West Point Lake because of drought conditions affecting river basins in Georgia, eastern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.

A spokesman for Corps of Engineers says the extra water being released is needed downstream to maintain hydropower, fish and wildlife and water quality in those areas.
