Purdue Extension Starts Website for Information on Drought

02 July 2012

US - Purdue Extension has created a website that provides information and resources to help homeowners, community leaders and farmers manage issues involving the worsening drought in Indiana.

The site, called IN Drought, is available here. It offers an array of information for anyone seeking guidance to help them through this period of extreme heat and dryness.

Community leaders will have quick access to information on burn bans, including a map of Indiana showing the status of restrictions in each county and other information they can share in their communities, such as advice on fireworks safety.

Farmers will see links to Purdue websites with resources they can use to help them in their operations affected by drought.

The Indiana map of the latest US Drought Monitor, showing the severity of dryness in each county, is displayed on the home page.
