KANSAS CITY, Mo. - After more than 300 days of drought conditions in the Heartland, 41 Action News Meteorologist, Gary Lezak declared Monday that the
drought has ended.
This year's snowfall and recent rains were finally enough to saturate the soil and end the drought.
"We've had so much rain and snow -- 31 inches of snow. The water levels are higher, the ponds have filled up and the reservoirs are up. The soil moisture has increased and everything is pointing to the drought being over," Lezak explained.
