In Americas, Drought & Fires, News Headlines

The drought that’s dried up parts of Texas for two years is now the worst in recorded history for the hardest-hit counties.
Texas state climatologist John Nielsen-Gammon says at least nine counties in south-central Texas are in their worst drought conditions since modern record-keeping began in 1895.

Nielsen-Gammon says the hardest-hit counties include Bastrop, Caldwell and Lee in Central Texas and Victoria, Bee, San Patricio, Live Oak, Jim Wells and Duval in south-central Texas.

He says conditions have worsened in those areas by one of the hottest summers ever.
Even with the severe drought in part of the state, about half of Texas isn’t under any kind of drought.
