Another sign of deepening drought: a burn ban in Chase County.


This week, Chase County commissioners signed a resolution banning all outdoor burns until further notice. The decision will be reviewed weekly until conditions improve.

Most of Chase County is under voluntary water restrictions as the drought continues to worsen. The US Drought Monitor's latest findings will update Thursday. The north half of the county has been in extreme drought for several weeks, while the southern half ranges from abnormally dry to severe drought.
