Kansas still affected by drought


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP)--Recent rain has meant some drought relief for sections of Kansas, but the state Department of Agriculture also says much of the state is still affected by drought.

In its weekly drought update, the Kansas Water Office said more than 85 percent of the state is dealing with some drought conditions. That includes eastern Kansas, where officials are keeping a close eye on water supplies in reservoirs.

The office also said 30 counties remain in an emergency drought stage and that 79 counties have been declared federal agricultural disasters this year because of drought, high winds and high temperatures.

The report also said eastern reservoirs in the Marais des Cygnes basin are below their conservation pools, while the Smoky Hill basin is experiencing low flow conditions.
