SD Official: Drought Worsening, Likely To Persist

SD Official: Drought Worsening, Likely To Persist
PIERRE, SD -

State climatologist Dennis Todey says drought conditions are intensifying in South Dakota, with predictions indicating the drought will persist or intensify over the next three months.

Todey spoke Monday to the South Dakota Drought Task Force, a group of state and federal officials working to help farmers, ranchers and others deal with dry conditions.

Todey says the southern half of South Dakota is in extreme or severe drought, with most of the rest of the state in moderate drought.

Todey says much of the corn crop has been lost in southeastern South Dakota, where farmers are cutting the corn for silage.

Craig Schaunaman, South Dakota director of the federal Farm Service Agency, says officials are working to get federal disaster declarations for many counties in the state.
