While Mother Nature has loosened her stranglehold on precious rains in recent weeks in southeast Kansas, an ongoing drought exists, Iola officials noted Monday.

That means the water warning issued by the Kansas Water Office restricting excess water usage remains in effect.

The restrictions were ordered Aug. 13 after the water office declared a water warning for all municipalities fed by the Neosho River, including Iola.
