A dust storm during the Dust Bowl.

Question: With the lingering, severe drought in places like the Texas Panhandle and western Kansas, is the United States in for another Dust Bowl?

However, he also says that the current High Plains drought is proving to be harsher and more intense than droughts of the past, raising questions about how the region will eventually recover from it.
