Episode Narrative Below normal rainfall fell during the month of July across North Mississippi. As a result, severe (D2) drought conditions continued across Northwest Mississippi while extreme (D3) conditions expanded into extreme Northwest Mississippi. Many crops that were planted during the spring struggled to grow due to lack of water. Irreversible damage was done to the corn crop while soybean and sorghum fields yield potential continued to dwindle as a result of the dry conditions. Many pastures were in poor condition forcing farmers to feed cattle baled hay. Lake and river levels dropped to low levels. Burn bans were issued for many counties as a result of the dry conditions.
Event Narrative Severe (D2) drought conditions became extreme (D3) conditions.
