USVI Drought Summary

Scattered showers affected the U.S. Virgin Islands in early September, following Hurricane Dorian's passage in late August. Although showers were mostly light, a few spots received totals in excess of 2 inches. For example, a CoCoRaHS observer near Christiansted, on St. Croix, reported a weekly sum of 2.45 inches. Several other locations, including King Airport on St. Thomas and a volunteer observer on the northern shore of St. John, received less than an inch. Well reports from the U.S. Geological Survey noted little change in groundwater levels in recent days. Taking all factors, including the Standardized Precipitation Index, into account, D0-L was retained for St. Croix, while D-nothing was maintained for St. Thomas and St. John.
