Despite Monday's storms, National Weather Service officials say drought conditions could return to the region for the summer months.

Parts of eastern Kentucky currently fall under "abnormally dry" conditions and some communities that were hit hard by last summer's drought say they are prepared for another dry spell.

“The only thing now, is just like last year and maybe a few years before, when it gets hot like this, people start using more water and we sometimes have trouble keeping up with command, but we're working around that,” Manchester Water Chief Operator Roy Gray said.

Manchester city officials say after having to seek alternate water sources last summer, they are installing a new, permanent water pump in case the dry conditions continue.
