Extreme drought conditions expand in South Dakota
The Associated Press - July 13, 2017

PIERRE, S.D. - Extreme drought conditions in South Dakota have worsened over the past week in the north-central part of the state.
 
The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows nearly 11 percent of the state being in extreme drought. That's up from a little over 4 percent last week.
 
Roughly 31 percent of the state is rated in severe drought, up slightly from a week ago. Another nearly 31 percent of South Dakota is experiencing moderate drought conditions, an increase from just below 24 percent last week.
 
The Agriculture Department estimates the state's winter wheat crop will total 28 million bushels, down 56 percent from last year, and the spring wheat crop at 32 million bushels, down 32 percent.
