Episode Narrative The drought that began in early August and became a D2 severe drought category by the end of August, continued through the month of October. The area affected by the drought was across much of southeast Iowa, extreme northeast Missouri and western Illinois. The impact of this drought was confined to agriculture/grasslands with some reduced crop yields but damage amounts are unknown. Some counties implemented burn bans in October to help prevent field and brush fires until the drought eased.
