It was reported yesterday that the governor of Florida has placed the entire state under a state of emergency due to wildfires. The experts says we have not seen this active a wildfire season since 2011. Some of the fires are man-made, some due to lightning - all due to it being too dry. The southern part of Florida is the worse off. Water conservation measures are now in effect in many parts of the state. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Live Oak 0.4 NE on 4/13/2017
