Tox Town Releases New Drought Location Page!

Posted by on October 23rd, 2012 Posted in: Announcements, Consumer Health, NLM Resources, Public Health

Do you wonder if droughts are related to climate change? If so, please consider visiting Tox Town’s newly released Drought Location page. Information is provided on why drought is a concern, how it relates to climate change, and possible health affects related to drought. The page is also available in Spanish, Sequía.

The best known U.S. drought was the Dust Bowl drought of the 1930s, when 65% percent of the country was affected by severe or extreme drought. In the summer of 2012, 55% of the continental United States experienced moderate to extreme drought, which was the largest such area since 1956.
