Drought in the West Continues Despite Winter Rain and Snow
Despite the rain and snow this winter, the West will not have enough to get rid of the drought. A recent study shows this bad news for the region.
What is Drought?
Drought is when there is not enough rain over a long period of time. This can cause problems for crops, animals, and people who need water to drink and grow food.
Why is the West in Drought?
The West has been in drought because there has not been enough rain for many years. This has made it hard for farmers to grow crops and for animals to find food and water.
What Can We Do?
We can help by conserving water and using it wisely. We can also support farmers by buying locally grown food and using water-saving technologies. By working together, we can help to reduce the effects of drought.
Let’s hope that the rain and snow next winter will be enough to bring relief to the West and end the drought.
