Drought Emergency Renewed for Kansas Counties

Posted by feww on May 7, 2012

Drought Order places 91 Kansas counties in warning or watch status

“Despite recent rains, the overall dry conditions that have persisted for more than a year now require us to continue to monitor the situation,” said Kansas Gov. “Meeting the needs of crops is a concern as moisture demands increase with the growing season.”

Effective immediately, the renewed drought emergency places 16 counties in a warning status and 75 in watch status.

Drought warning has been issued for Barber, Clark, Comanche, Finney, Grant, Gray, Haskell, Kearny, Kiowa, Meade, Morton, Pratt, Seward, Stafford, Stanton and Stevens counties.

“… the overall total moisture for the past year is below normal, and temperatures are projected to be above normal this year again,” said director of the Kansas Water Office. “It is important we monitor conditions for the state as they could deteriorate quickly with no reserves.”

U.S. Drought Monitor

As of May 1, 2012 about 60 percent of Contiguous U.S. was in D0 (Abnormally Dry) to D4 (Exceptional Drought) conditions.
