THE DUST BOWL
by Makenzie and Sydney
DUST IN THE AIR...
The Dust Bowl of 1931 brought human misery to society when the states of Oklahoma, Texas, and parts of Kansas, New Mexico, and Colorado, were blasted with strong winds of dust and dirt. The rains stopped and the blizzards began. Families suffered at the first touch of the toxic winds. This was just another issue settlers had to face during the Great Depression of 1929.
What caused the dirty thirties?
Could another dust storm be possible?
Could it strike once more?
What if it did return? Would we as a country be ready? What are some things we can do to prevent it from happening again? There are a few natural solutions. Taking care of the farm land in the U.S and never letting the ground be bare (except in winter) can save us in the long run. Having a plan encase Dust does ever strike again would be first priority if we have any change of living through, which some did.
