Storms Fill Fossil Lake

Fossil Lake 5 7-26-13Several years of drought have taken a serious toll on Fossil Lake located just south of Russell.

Lake levels had dropped to all-time record lows and many citizens were wondering if it may go dry before the end of the summer.

That all changed on Thursday night.  

A large complex of thunderstorms dropped more than three inches of rain over and immediately west of the lake.

As you can see from the pictures, the water level has risen dramatically in just one night.
