What caused the Dust Bowl?

The Dust Bowl: By 1932, 14 dust storms, known as black blizzards were reported, and in just one year, the number increased to nearly 40. The Dust Bowl brought ecological, economical and human misery to America during a time when it was already suffering under the Great Depression.

Perhaps the most devastating weather driven event in American history, the drought of the 1920's and 1930's significantly impacted Minnesota's economic, social, and natural landscapes. Abnormally dry and hot growing season weather throughout the better part of two decades turned Minnesota farm fields to dust and small lakes into muddy ponds. The parched soil was easily taken up by strong winds, often turning day into night.

BLACK SUNDAY - April 14, 1935 - The rains didn't return until 4 years later. When the dust settled in April 1935, scenes like this were repeated throughout the high plains region. Crops were ruined. Farms produced nothing. Livestock died en masse. People abandoned their homes in droves, with little more than the clothes on their back to show for many years of hard work building their homesteads. There was nothing of value to sell, no one to sell to.
