So much green vegetation around the area has been a pleasant sight for the past few weeks. The more live plants there are, the more fuel for wildfires when the weather pattern becomes dry again.
Recent rain means good things for the city's water supply.
"What we've seen this week is heaven for water conservation," Emmett Autrey, Director of Utilities for the City of Amarillo said.
The City is actively treating standing water, but the efforts will not kill all of the mosquitoes. Everyone is encouraged to check their yards and property for standing water and eliminate it.
