    California Dust Bowl

     

    These are pictures of a dust storm that happened in Kern County, California. They were taken during afternoon on a sunny day.  With the drought and lack of water aid from the state, vast acres of farmland have sat idle this year. Strong winds sweep up the loose top soil and have caused a modern day Dust Bowl. If this continues to happen, thousands of acres of farmland will lose their topsoil and become arable land. This is the same problem that ravaged Oklahoma as they saw that their farmland was unable to grow crops. California needs water reform that will allow the farmers throughout the San Jouquin Valley be able to water their crops and prevent a disaster from happening.
