ALERTING YOU TO DANGER

ACROSS THE BIG COUNTRY

Big Country Drought

The Big Country drought has gone from bad to worse this year. Not one person in our region is being spared from the dry weather.

As of early May, most of the Big Country, Concho Valley, and Heartland saw Extreme Drought conditions. A few counties, especially in the northern Big Country and up near the Panhandle were categorized by Exceptional Drought, the most severe.
