The area most affected in Texas was the panhandle. Cities such as Dalhart, Amarillo, Lubbock, Midland, Odessa and the small communities surrounding them were heavily impacted. The Dust Bowl: 1930s ©2012, TESCCC
Causes: Severe drought (no rain) High winds and temperatures well over 100 degrees. Farming methods at that time did not use ground cover, crop rotation, or soil conservation methods. The result was that the dry conditions and high winds caused the soil to turn to dust and blow away. The Dust Bowl: 1930s ©2012, TESCCC
Effects: Severe dust storms or “black blizzards” devastated communities. Crops were ruined. Livestock perished. Family farms were lost. The Dust Bowl: 1930s ©2012, TESCCC
Effects: Adults and children died from dust pneumonia. Children wore dust masks walking to school. Homes were overcome with insects and pests such as scorpions, spiders, rattlesnakes. Thousands of jackrabbits devoured family gardens. The Dust Bowl: 1930s ©2012, TESCCC
Effects: Acts of daily life such as breathing, eating, and working were no longer simple. Children wore dust masks to and from school. Women hung wet sheets over windows in a futile attempt to stop the dirt from entering their homes. Farmers watched helplessly as their crops and land blew away. The Dust Bowl: 1930s ©2012, TESCCC
West Texas was hit the hardest, but people all over the state were hurt economically during these years. The Dust Bowl: 1930s ©2012, TESCCC
