ANGLETON — Brazoria County could have gone under a burn ban at least a couple times since July, but each time rainstorms serendipitously passed through and removed the danger. This time, that may not be the case.

The U.S. Drought Monitor’s report from Thursday showed increasing levels of drought for Southeast Texas and specifically Brazoria County. The worst of Texas’ drought conditions are mostly confined to the western and panhandle areas of the state, but days without significant precipitation let drought conditions begin and worsen in other areas.
