Drought Impact Reporter announced

The National Drought Mitigation Center has come up with a way to let anyone affected by drought to record and document the direct impacts that drought is having on their lives and livelihoods.

"The Drought Impact Reporter--http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu--gives everyday citizens, from golf course managers to farmers to landscapers to homeowners the opportunity to provide direct input into the Drought Monitor process," said Kansas climatologist, Mary Knapp.

The website provides a means of recording loss for disaster programs and allows for documentation of the current event in order to make future comparisons.

Visitors to the site can also learn about the limitations of current mitigation programs, said Knapp, who oversees the Kansas Weather Data Library, www.ksre.ksu.edu/wdl, based at Kansas State University. More information about Kansas drought conditions and other weather information is available at www.ksre.ksu.edu/wdl.
