Drought Emergencies, Warnings, and Watches Issued For Kansas Counties

Despite recent rains, drought conditions in Kansas continue to worsen. Today Governor Sam Brownback updated the Drought Declaration for Kansas counties with Executive Order 14-04.  The update includes all 105 counties either in an emergency, warning or watch status. This order places more than half of Kansas counties in an emergency drought status.

 The updated drought declaration has moved 26 counties into a warning status and 23 into a watch status while 56 counties are in emergency status. This action was recommended by Tracy Streeter, Director of the Kansas Water Office and Chair of the Governor’s Drought Response Team. 

 This Executive Order shall remain in effect for those counties so identified until rescinded by Executive Order or superseded by a subsequent Executive Order revising the drought stage status of the affected counties.  Effective immediately:

 The Governor’s Drought Response Team will continue to watch the situation closely and work to minimize the effects the drought has on Kansans.  For more detailed information about current conditions, see the Kansas Climate Summary and Drought Report on the Kansas Water Office website at:
