Heat and droughts strike U.S.

The past 12 months in the U.S. have been the hottest of any such period on record, with nearly every state experiencing warmer-than-average temperatures.  The high temperatures have contributed to an expanding drought across the central United States that's battered crops and contributing to rising food prices.
