Episode Narrative Continued dry and very hot conditions across Central Alabama in the month of August led to worsening drought conditions. By the end of the month, more than 90 percent of Central Alabama had been placed in the Exceptional Drought (D4) designation, with the remainder in Severe Drought (D3).

Agricultural, hydrologic, and socioligical impacts continued to be widely felt. Around 80 percent of the corn and soybean crop, 70 percent of the cotton crop, and 40 percent of the peanut crop, was considered to be in poor or very poor condition by month's end. In addition, about 60 percent of the livestock, and 75 percent of pasture lands, were also considered to be poor or very poor, and hay yields for the summer were less than half of normal.

Major rivers and reservoirs continued to run much below normal. Navigation on major rivers became significantly impacted, and many boat landings on major lakes became unusuable due to extremely low lake levels.

Area water utility companies continued to enforce fines and surcharges for excessive water usage, and water restriction plans remained in effect.
