Episode Narrative The exceptional drought continued to plague South Texas through the month of November. The month was characterized by well below normal rainfall with almost all of the region receiving less than 1 inch of rainfall. Monthly rainfall deficits were from a half to 1 inch for the Brush Country, 1 to 2 inches for the Coastal Bend, and 2 to 3 inches for Victoria Crossroads and Mid-Coast regions.
Voluntary water restrictions were in effect for the cities of Laredo, Victoria, Point Comfort, Orange Grove, Mirando City, and the Santa Gertrudis District of King Ranch in Kleberg County. The city officials for Corpus Christi encouraged residents to conserve water.
Extremely low soil moisture conditions existed across South Texas with most farmers opting out of planting winter or pasture crops. Livestock producers continued to reduce herds.
The drought has also impacted the bays and estuaries as salinity levels continued to rise. Low to moderate concentrations of red tide continued to affect areas along the coast.
