AFFECTED AREAS:
Faulk County, SD

Start Date: 4/1/2017 - End Date: 7/17/2017
Our corn is burning up, our pastures are going, going, gone, and cattle are getting fed. Since April 1 we've had 3.1 inches of rainfall, total. Normally we'd get an average of 2-3 inches a month from April through July. It's 102 degrees today with 30 mile an hour winds. The corn is dying today.
