Russell County now “abnormally dry”

After not being in a drought since late July, most of Russell County is now “abnormally dry,” according to the U.S. Drought Monitor and the National Weather Service.

All of neighboring Adair, Casey, and Pulaski counties have “abnormally dry” drought conditions.

The southeast tip of Russell County remains normal but with no measurable rain in sight, the “abnormally dry” could expand when new data is released later this week.
