Drought Worsening & Spreading In Our Area Again

November 29th, 2012 at 5:24 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Drought expansion from the south & northwest is underway with drought conditions returning to our north with areas south ofg U.S. 36 seeing a resurgence of drought.

This is largely due to 2012 having one of the driest Novembers on record.  As of November 27, the Wabash River is just 1.9′ at the Brown Street Overlook gauge station, after dropping to 0.8′ this summer.   It is projected to go down to about 1.0′ by early next Tuesday.

2012 deficit at the station is -2.57″ as of November 29.

TOP 3 LOWEST WABASH RIVER LEVELS AT THE BROWN STREET OVERLOOK:

1.  0.24′  August 18, 1901

2.  0.30′  September 26, 1941

3.  0.82′  July 19, 2012

    Hey Chad! Hope all is well in your neighborhood! A friend of mine sent me some information about the sick holes that are appearing in Ohio & Louisiana…They are warning of an earthquake in the “New Madrid” area within the next couple of days. Is there validity in any of that?
