Episode Narrative The exceptional drought continued to plague South Texas through the month of September. Although there were a few days with beneficial rainfall over portions of South Texas during September, rainfall amounts remained well below normal for a month that is typically the wettest of the year. Monthly rainfall deficits were from around 2 inches for the Brush Country to between 3 and 5 inches over the coastal counties. Only isolated areas received above normal rainfall for the month, mainly over eastern McMullen, northern Goliad, and northern Jim Wells Counties.
Different stages of water restrictions were in effect for the cities of Laredo, Victoria, Point Comfort, Sunset Bay, Orange Grove, East Riviera, and Mirando City. The city officials for Corpus Christi were asking residents to voluntarily conserve water.
Despite the rainfall, range land and pastures remained in very poor condition. The rain helped improve topsoil moisture, but was not enough to help warm season grasses this late in the season. Livestock producers continued to sell cattle at a record level due to the lack of water and feed, with hay becoming scarce. Many Webb County livestock producers have totally liquidated their herds.
