Scattered areas of rain & a few thunderstorms are moving across the Brazos Valley this afternoon. Later today & into the evening hours, while the coverage is expected to remain low (20%) -- should a thunderstorm develop, it could become severe. Large hail & damaging winds are the main concern -- however an isolated tornado threat cannot be ignored. Strong thunderstorms are possible overnight & early Monday morning, as well (50%).
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) People wanting to share photos of the lingering Texas drought have more time to post their original pictures online.
The Texas Water Development Board on Friday announced the original Sept. 30 deadline to offer photos has been extended to Oct. 31.
A coalition of state agencies on Aug. 5 launched an interactive public awareness campaign on how the drought, going back to 2010, has impacted lives.
The water board, the Texas Department of Agriculture and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are sponsoring the effort using various social media platforms. The agencies later this month will display some of the drought photos at the Texas Capitol.
Photographs also may be posted to Twitter or Instagram. Please use the hashtag #txdrought when sharing your photos.
The campaign's Instagram account is texasdrought
