Colquitt County-  South Georgians are hoping for divine intervention in the state's worst drought in 50 years. 

With extended forecasts promising little, if any, rain Colquitt Countians are turning to prayer to water their fields. 

Seventy-four counties including Colquitt are now classified as extreme drought conditions. Colquitt County received only a tenth of an inch of rain since April 20th.

The Colquitt County Ministerial Association will meet Wednesday at noon at the First Baptist Church Chapel to pray for rain.

According to the University of Georgia, if dry conditions continue into the summer, afternoon temperatures between 100 and 105 will be common.

The entire state is under a level two outdoor watering schedule which only allows watering from midnight to 10:00 a.m. on your assigned day.
