Mobile site for reporting drought

Are you frustrated that the Drought Monitor is not accurately reflecting dry conditions in your area? It may be that they do not have any data there other than radar-based rainfall. Reports from “on the ground” can be invaluable for drawing the correct drought lines. Here is a new mobile-friendly site for reporting drought conditions in your area. You can find it at http://bit.ly/droughtreport19.  You can find out more about it at SCNow at https://www.scnow.com/living/columns/article_f592d42c-c133-11e9-aa27-f7c088b46d26.html in case you want more information. It can be used across the country, not just in South Carolina.

A trio tractors rake, bale and collect straw at Scoggins Farm, a family farm on West Armuchee Road in South Walker County, Ga., on June 1, 2017. Plentiful rain so far this spring has fostered a far better growing season so far, local agriculture officials say.
