Episode Narrative Below normal rainfall continued through the month of September across much of North Mississippi. The lack of rainfall expanded severe (D2) drought conditions from just a small portion of Northwest Mississippi to more of Northwest Mississippi. The biggest impact from the drought was on agriculture as many crops suffered due to the lack of rainfall. Hydrological concerns started to become an issue by the end of the month as many lake and river levels dropped. Burn bans were issued for most of North Mississippi.
Event Narrative Severe (D2) drought conditions continued across Tunica County.
