Droughts Across the Decades

More than half of the continental United States was in moderate to extreme drought in June — including corn- and soybean-producing states — damaging crops and impacting prices at the grocery store.

Some say if the hot, dry weather continues, this year’s drought could rival the “dust bowl” years of the 1930s.

How are you feeling the heat where you live?
