The Dust Bowl also known as the dirty 30’s started in the 1930. It was a period of severe dust storms that greatly damaged the U.S. and the soil of the American and Canadian prairies during the 30’s. Severe drought and a failure to apply dryland farming methods to prevent wind erosion caused the event. Great black clouds of dust began to cover the sun.

Giant dust storms swallowed large cities and towns..The biggest impact of the Dust Bowl was the southern plains. The northern plains weren’t so badly affected. But the drought dust and agricultural decline were felt there as well.

In 1930 weather patterns began to shift over the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The pacific became cooler than normal and the atlantic became warmer than normal.
