PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - People in South Dakota looking for drought information can check out an updated Governor’s Drought Task Force website.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says the website will include the latest U.S. Drought Monitor, weather reports, fire conditions and agricultural information.

Daugaard says the state wants to provide the best information possible. Daugaard activated the drought task force in July to keep an eye on thirsty conditions and share information among government agencies and other organizations.

The governor has also issued an emergency fire declaration for 13 drought-affected counties in western and central South Dakota.
