INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Worsening drought conditions have placed the entire state of Indiana under a water shortage warning.
The Department of Homeland Security extended the warning to all 92 counties on Tuesday after placing less than half the state in that category a week ago.
Homeland Security Executive Director Joe Wainscott tells WRTV that the dry conditions put the state in "uncharted territory."
The Indianapolis Star reports the state is asking those who use 100,000 gallons of water or more daily to cut usage by 10 percent to 15 percent because reservoirs are being depleted.
Morse Reservoir is down 6 feet and Geist Reservoir is 2 feet below normal. Citizens Water spokeswoman Sarah Holsapple says the company plans to begin pulling extra water from Geist to help sustain water levels in Morse Reservoir.
