Drought Monitor

Love this tool, put out by the National Drought Mitigation Center.

Currently Oregon is listed as undergoing a Severe Drought — which is third, in a drought severity scale which goes to five.

  • Abnormally Dry
  • Moderate Drought
  • Severe Drought
  • Extreme Drought
  • Exceptional Drought

I feel like they need to work on the wording of that last one, which sounds slightly laudatory. Hey, you’re exceptional! A few parts of Nevada and the midwest are exceptional.
