Drought Intensifies

By Kelly Sparks | 

It was another hot Saturday afternoon with some rain showers in our area, but not enough rain to alleviate the drought problem.

On Thursday, the Environmental Public and Protection Cabinet announced a water shortage watch for the central and western regions of the bluegrass.

Officials are recommending people to plan, prepare and be aware of the drought conditions and it’s impacts to our local water sources.

Water suppliers in our area should begin to monitor water supplies closely and notify the Division of Water as the water shortage advisories are issued.
