Request U.S. Drought Monitor Updates

The National Drought Mitigation Center sends an automated email each week that includes the percentage of the entire country that is in drought, the latest U.S. Drought Monitor map, a map showing what changed in the past week, and the U.S. Drought Monitor author's narrative for the week. The NDMC uses the same list for press releases about drought, as warranted by changing conditions. To receive these updates, please subscribe to the DMUpdate list at this link:
