Western South Dakota remains in severe drought


Western South Dakota is not getting a break when it comes to the drought.

According to State Climatologist Dennis Todey, the western part of the state remains in moderate to severe drought conditions. He says it has rained enough in the eastern part of the state to begin improving the soil, but areas like Fall River County are having no such luck.

On the bright side, Todey says he expects rain fall will be higher than last year and will continue through the summer.

The National Weather Service says Fall River County had less than 14 inches of rain since last June.
