Federal officials have designated portions of 11 western and central states as primary natural disaster areas because of a drought…The worst states for drought are California, Oregon and Nevada, the monitor reported. More than 62% of the state of California is now in “extreme” drought, the state’s highest percentage since the Drought Monitor began in Jan. 2000.
Extreme drought is the second-worst category of drought.
While the Mid-West and East Coast are dealing with the Polar Vortex, we are dealing with the heat/drought.
Guess what? My city/county is in the red zone… Yay…
This drought makes it prime for wild fires, oh wait, that already happened.
