Most Of SD In Moderate To Severe Drought

A report shows most of South Dakota is in moderate to severe drought, with conditions worsening.

The U.S. Drought Monitor indicates that 77 percent of South Dakota is now considered to be in moderate to severe drought. Nearly 20 percent of the state is in severe drought.

State Climatologist Dennis Todey says this is the most widespread drought in the Corn Belt since 1988. He says precipitation across the state last week was less than one inch, except for the northwest and some other local areas.

Todey says nearly all parts of South Dakota have set records for average temperatures since March 1, and precipitation has been well below average in the past 60 days.

Officials say hay production is suffering and row crops are showing signs of stress.
