Episode Narrative Below normal rainfall (generally one to three inches) across Central Alabama through the month of June exacerbated the ongoing drought conditions. By the end of the month, all or portions of 24 Central Alabama counties were placed in the Exceptional (D4) Drought category. This area was generally from the cities Demopolis, Clanton, Ashland, and Heflin, northward. Most of the remainder of Central Alabama experienced Extreme (D3) Drought conditions as June drew to a close.
Hydrologic and agricultural impacts were widely felt. Crops became highly stressed due to the lack of rainfall, with losses by the end of the month ranging from 50 to nearly 100 percent in some Central Alabama counties. Stream flows on area rivers and waterways remained near record low levels, and most reservoir levels were well below normal. The number of mandatory water restrictions continued to increase, with fines and surcharges being enforced for excessive water usage. Many residential lawns, shrubbery, and gardens became severely stressed by the very dry conditions.
