(KSL News) Parts of Utah are looking parched.

A report in the Deseret Morning News says Lake Powell is only about half full. The lake has seen seriously low levels caused by a drought that began in 1999.

Experts say by the end of June the water storage level will likely only sit around 48 percent. That puts the lake at about 94 feet below capacity.
