Share Your Stories of the Drought

The drought has affected Texans across the state. Haskell Simon, a rice farmer in Bay City, won't have water for his crops this year.

This week we launched a new interactive webpage about the historic Texas drought, Dried Out. The page gives you a visual sense of how intense the drought has been and its impact on the state.

And we want to hear your stories about how the drought has affected you. You can tell us how the drought has affected your business, your home — or your way of life. Send us your stories, photos or videos.

You can email them to news@kut.org, or you can leave a voicemail at (512) 537-SITX (7489). Please include a name and email address or phone number so we can contact you.

And you can learn more about the drought at the new interactive page, Dried Out: Confronting the Texas Drought.
