Water becomes increasingly scarce during Missouri drought
Parts of Missouri are so dry that corn crops are suffering and hay for cattle is in short supply. This as water becomes increasingly scarce.
The Show-Me State has had below-average rainfall since winter.
The U.S. Drought Monitor map shows nearly all of Missouri is experiencing drought, with several counties in northern and southwestern parts of the state especially hard-hit.
Missouri is the only Midwestern state with such severe conditions.
