Drought Spreads Across the Country

More than 40% of states in the U.S. are facing abnormal dryness or drought, according to a report released by the National Drought Mitigation Center. The July percentage is the highest recorded level of drought since the center began documenting conditions 12 years ago.

The report tracks and ranks weather conditions from "abnormal dryness" to "exceptional drought." A drought is considered "exceptional" when the situation extends beyond what "could be considered part of normal risk management," according to the center.

Exceptional drought conditions spread across nearly 12% of the United States last month.

Texas is suffering from the third-worst drought in the state's history, according to state Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples. More than two million acres of Texas farmland have been abandoned due to the exceptional dryness, Staples said last week.

Seven other states are at least 85% abnormally dry. They are New Mexico, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas and Florida. The drought monitor said affected states may see improvement from rain in the coming weeks.

异常干旱侵袭美国八大州

据美国干旱缓解中心的报告称,美国40%的州都面临异常干燥或干旱。自中心开始纪录湿度情况的12年里,今年7月份的干旱程度达到最高干旱纪录。

该报告将气候情况从"异常干燥"级别上升为"异常干旱"级别。研究中心称,异常干旱即气候条件已超过正常危险管理。

异常干旱上月即扩展到全国的12%个州。

国家农业委员会委员Todd Staples说,德克萨斯州正面临历史以来第三次严重干旱天气。超过200万英亩的农田因为干旱被废弃。

其他三个州也面临着85%的异常干旱,他们是新墨西哥州、路易斯安那州、俄克拉荷马州、男卡莱罗纳州、乔治亚州、阿肯色州和佛罗里达州。干旱监测中心的人员说接下来几周的降雨可能会缓解遭受干旱影响的州。
