Water levels on the Great Lakes are dropping again.

Experts say months of relatively dry weather has accelerated evaporation.

After dropping to their lowest levels in 35 years in the spring of 2001, all the Great Lakes -- except Superior -- rose last year. But they are still below normal.

Lakes Michigan and Huron are seven inches lower than this time last year.

The Army Corps of Engineers says Lakes St. Clair and Superior are down two inches, Lake Erie one inch and Lake Ontario eight inches.
