AFFECTED AREAS:
Gordon County, GA

Start Date: 6/30/2016 - End Date: 2/9/2017
Small Commercial Cattle Operation - hay yield and loss of pasture grazing over a 6-month period. Water level in ponds reduced to 85%. Only 3 days of measurable precipation was received during that period. Even though numerous small scattered thunder showers moved over the area during this period it did not even settle the dust on our 90 acres in the central area of Gordon County.
