HYANNIS – The Cape and Islands are among multiple regions across Massachusetts that are still under a long-term drought.

The Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs reported that the Cape’s status has been downgraded to a “significant drought,” joining the Islands area at Level 2.
