Drought remains extreme in Boone

Boone County — Extreme drought gripped Boone County for the third consecutive week, but conditions statewide showed moderate improvement.

A swath of extreme drought, including west and south central Indiana, spread from Illinois to Ohio on the U.S. Drought Monitor’s latest map, released at 8 a.m. Thursday. The assessment was based on data collected Tuesday. The previous report showed extreme drought as far as the Indiana-Michigan line.

While locally heavy rains fell in west and east central Indiana between Aug. 7-9, the National Weather Service said it would require “widespread rainfall of about an inchevery 10 days continuing through October” to break the drought.
