Severe Drought Issued

For the first time in eight years all of Kentucky is locked in a severe drought.

The numbers were released on Aug. 13, 2007, at U.K. and they show the state hasn’t been this dry since 1999.

A water shortage warning for Bowling Green and Warren County was issued by the state on August 10.

The Barren River flow is reported at its lowest level since the Barren River Reservoir was completed in 1963.
