Indiana drought conditions improve

October 4, 2012

The severe drought conditions that troubled Indiana through the summer have largely dissipated, with a federal report showing the state in its best condition since mid-June. The weekly report released Thursday listed about 15 percent of Indiana in severe drought, mostly in the state's southeastern corner. About one-quarter of the state was classified in that condition last week. None of Indiana is listed in the more serious categories of extreme or exceptional drought.
