Episode Narrative During October, drought conditions intensified across northeast portions of the Coastal Bend and Victoria Crossroads, and also expanded south and west into southern and interior portions of the Coastal Bend. By the end of October, severe drought conditions existed across Bee, Goliad, Victoria, Calhoun, Refugio, Aransas, and San Patricio counties. Moderate drought conditions had developed across Live Oak, Nueces, and northern Jim Wells counties by the end of October. Abnormally dry conditions were observed across northern La Salle, McMullen, Duval, southern Jim Wells, and Kleberg counties. (per the U.S. Drought Monitor: http://www.drought.unl.edu/dm/monitor.html)
The primary impacts of the drought during October continued to be agricultural in drought counties. In addition, reservoir levels fell slightly. Rivers and creeks in the rainfall deficit areas continued a slow fall, and were below baseflow.
