This drought on its own would not have been problematic if not for the ever increasing amounts of topsoil that was left vulnerable by the farming methods of the time. All the loose topsoil due to farming methods hit by a nearly decade long drought and hard winds completely lifted the topsoil off of the ground and blew it away. Topsoil that originated in Texas was blown as far away as New

I always think of California as being typified by lush greenery and beautiful beaches, yet in reality, it is facing one of the most severe droughts on record. It is so severe that the Governor Edmund Brown had recently declared a drought State of Emergency this January. In response, directed state officials have recently planned to take action to prepare for these “water shortages” by imposing restrictions on the amount of water used by California residents.
