Kern County is officially out of a drought thanks to recent rainfall.
According to 23ABC's Chief Meteorologist Elaina Rusk, this morning's Drought Monitor Report cleared our last areas of "Abnormally Dry" drought ranking from the region. The change comes thanks to above average rainfall the past two months.
