Although Hurricane Isaac dumped more than 20 inches of rain on some parts of Louisiana and Mississippi, it did little to dull the drought plaguing Georgia.

Forecasters had initially forecast that the hurricane could bring much-needed rain to the Georgia, according to a news release.

Instead, Hurricane Isaac veered west, coming ashore east of New Orleans.

Although regular afternoon showers continue in some parts of Georgia, about half of the state is still experiencing some level of drought.

Streams, creeks and rivers in parts of the state remain extremely low.
