Cities near the Great Lakes
On the Major Rivers (Ohio, Mississippi)
the Pac NW

In trouble
Florida
Atlanta
Arizona
SoCal
Las Vegas
Denver


prob many more...

You pretty much answered your own question. I agree with this list.

Personally, I'm not worried about Atlanta. In some ways this drought is a good thing--at least people are becoming aware of taking better care of their resources. Every yard being planted with native plants instead of grass, is a step in the right direction. So is every water conserving toilet being installed, etc.

Things will be exciting for a little while more... and then the rains will return. A strong hurricane season is all it will take to fill the lakes back up and then some. But my hat is off to the politicians who will play this for all it's worth. I only wish GA had a few stronger officials who could really make some changes.
