Kansas ARES District 1 Situation Report

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, little or no precipitation meant another week of growing deficits. Exceptional drought conditions continue to expand in Kansas and into parts of the Oklahoma and northern Texas Panhandles, as those areas have received less than a quarter-inch of precipitation in the last six months. Gusty winds reportedly produced sand storms in our neighboring states. Extreme drought was expanded northeastward in Kansas based on precipitation deficits over the last 365 days. While light precipitation is expected over the next few days, precipitation amounts are expected to remain below normal for this time of year.
