Much of Indiana in low drought

September 5, 2013

The U.S. Drought Monitor's weekly report released Thursday lists much of Indiana's midsection and parts of its northern counties as abnormally dry, which is the least-severe drought condition. The report places 34 percent of the state in that category. The National Weather Service has measured a smidge more than an inch of rain since the start of August in Indianapolis, with only a slight chance of rain forecast for the coming days.
