The risks begin before the insecticide has fully broken down which does not persist for long periods of time.

Weather System heading for New England As of Friday the storm system will be dissipating, but will still be carrying enough punch to cause high winds with gusts of up to 60 mph and dump several inches of wet snow in the Lake Superior area. Snow is expected with flurries and lowered visibility throughout a large swath of the Northern states and lower Great Lakes region. The National Weather Service continues to watch the storm closely and assess and damage caused.
The farmers and settlers then plowed up 100 million acres in parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, California, Texas, and New Mexico, because there were some wet years.. Therefore, this event became known as the Great Plow-Up (Legacy and Worster 3). After the Great Plow-Up, there was a major drought that swept across the country. When drought, eager farmers, and loose land are combined, the result is catastrophic. The immense dust storms began in 1931 and they finally ended in 1939.
Tornadoes don't get names like hurricanes, but they are named after the places where they caused the most destruction. The world's deadliest tornado was in Bangladesh in April 1989.

The United States Weather Bureau (the precursor to the National Weather Service) had called for "rains and strong shifting winds" on that day, but not tornadoes.
Health risks spanned from the horrendous environment. The origin of the apocalypse is unknown, but the father did hear concussions then identifies a “dull rose glow” (52) one morning that altered the country from then on. The land was uninhabited, the trees were all dead, and ash flew all over creating a grey murk (4). The ash that fluttered around was a major hindrance for the man and his son. They had to wear masks to cover their face so they would not inhale the murk, but the father still seemed to have a reoccurring respiratory problem.
The operations have raised troubling questions about water quality and threat to public health. “Manure from factory farms often contains majority of heavy metals, lake-choking nutrients and deadly pathogens such as E. coli. In fact, wherever factory farms have concentrated industrial piles of manure in small space, big trouble follows” (Dr. Paul Hasselback). Local citizens are concerned about the amount of untreated waste it creates. According to a U.S. survey, people living downwind from hog farms, where such factories originate experience more headaches, runny noses, sore throats, excessive coughing, diarrhea and burning eyes than residents of communities without hog factories.

Over the past two decades the pine forests of Western North America have experienced major changes due to the Mountain Pine Beetle epidemic that began in 1995. Mountain Pine Beetles are insect parasites that use trees as their hosts in order to mate and lay eggs. After the larva becomes a beetle, the tree is killed and the next generation of beetles set out to find another pine tree and the cycle repeats. Environmentalists have proven the changes in the lifecycle of the pine beetle to be directly correlated with the adaptations of the Mountain Pine and climate change. Since the epidemic began the Mountain Pine Beetle is responsible for affecting millions of acres of forest in the western United States and over 44 million acres in British Columbia.
In Europe in 1999, more than 100 students in Belgium got sick after drinking Coca-Cola. Scientists examined the beverage and saw that there wasn’t anything to cause real damage and that it was a case of mass hysteria triggered by the scare of mad cow disease and dioxin-tainted animal products (10 Incredibly Insane Cases of Mass Hysteria, 2014). Post traumatic stress disorder is often seen in soldiers that have come back from war.
