Episode Narrative Lack of rainfall during the month of September continued drought conditions across Northwest Mississippi. As a result, severe (D2) drought conditions continued across Northwest Mississippi while extreme (D3) conditions continued across extreme Northwest Mississippi. Many crops that were planted during the spring suffered irreversible damage due to lack of water. Soybean fields yield potential dwindled as a result of the lack of rain.
