After spending weeks without much change in the drought outlook across Texoma a lack of rain is really taking its toll. And, this week's weekly update added multiple counties to the "Exceptional" drought category. This is a dramatic increase from last week's report.
Here is how it breaks down:
"Exceptional" Stage 5:
"Extreme" Stage 4:
"Severe" Stage 3
With this data it means that 64% of Texoma is in the highest level of drought at Stage 5 or "Exceptional" drought.
Please remember drought level numbers DO NOT represent any city or communities drought emergency numeral system.
