Sangamon County Faces Flooding, Drought Simultaneously


In another example of an unusual Central Illinois winter, Springfield and Sangamon County are facing the prospect of both flooding and drought this week.

A flood watch remains in effect on Thursday, with the prospect of heavy rain and rapid snowmelt threatening to inundate creeks, streams, and storm sewers.  But the still-frozen ground means most of that moisture won't seep into the soil, which may mean that drought conditions will linger.

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor still shows all of Sangamon County in at least a moderate drought status, and the far eastern tip of the county is listed as "severe drought."
