Drought Declarations have been Removed

Drought declarations for all 120 Kentucky counties have been removed, according to state officials. Recent rains have eliminated precipitation deficits, improved stream flows, and soil moisture levels. Rainfall since October 3rd, when the statewide Level 1 and Level 2 drought declarations were issued, have helped ease the moderate to severe drought conditions.

Although the drought declarations have been removed, officials say some drought impacts may still persist into the winter, especially regarding a potential lack of winter feed for livestock.
