HAYS COUNTY — The Hays County burn ban notice will remain in place for the immediate future.
Hays County Fire Marshal Nathan Mendenhall recommended the notice during the Hays County Commissioners Court due to the low humidity the county is experiencing. According to Mendenhall, the average Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI) in Hays County is at 499 and the high in the county is 586. Elevated fire weather conditions are possible across the area later this week.
