Sangamon County Slowly Coming Out Of Drought Category


For the first time in nearly five months, Sangamon County is no longer considered to be in a drought.

 

The latest map from the U.S. Drought Monitor still lists Springfield and the surrounding areas as “abnormally dry,” but that is an improvement from the last report, which placed the county in the “Moderate Drought” category. Now less than half the state is considered to be under drought conditions, although almost 85-percent of Illinois is listed as at least “abnormally dry.”

 

The last time Sangamon County was not placed under a “drought” category was mid-June.
