Rain douses county for days
Because of the rainfall caused by Hurricane Joaquin and another low pressure system, Screven County has seen and felt quite a bit of rainfall over the last week.
Ray Hicks, coordinator of the Screven County Extension Office, and had this to say about the precipitation:
“We have seen anywhere between five and eight inches [of rain] within the county,” Hicks said. “Obviously, more northern parts of the county, closer to South Carolina have gotten more rain.”
According to Hicks, the rain has caused farming issues, namely with peanuts and cotton.
Hicks said some peanuts could not be harvested due to the dampness of the fields in which they are being grown.
The harvest of cotton has been held back by the rainfall over the course of the past week as well, as farmers cannot assess the crops until the fields are dried.
“We’ve had homeowners call about mushrooms in their yards as well,” Hicks said. “We don’t believe that these mushrooms are detrimental in any way, but they should not be eaten. What we need is just some sunshine and dry weather.”
Sunshine and dry weather may be some much needed reprieve from the moisture that has been seen so far. According to The Weather Channel, temperatures are supposed to jump into the mid-70’s to low 80’s beginning on Tuesday, and rain is not being forecasted for the next seven days.
