WAUSAU (WAOW) -
Gov. Scott Walker has extended a state of emergency due to drought to all 72 Wisconsin counties.
In a news release, Walker said the state will use whatever resources necessary to help people cope with the abnormally dry conditions.
Last week, Walker declared a state of emergency for 42 counties.
This declaration orders state emergency officials "to coordinate state efforts in response to the drought, and directs all state agencies to assist in the response and recovery," according to the news release. It also helps farmers have an easier time getting water from certain lakes and streams.
