Drought Expands Throughout USA

America is in the midst of a drought that is expanding throughout the USA. While climatologists brush it off as a climate weather pattern called 'La NiƱa' in the Pacific, all one has to do is go to God's Holy Word to find out the cause. One of God's judgements predicted in Isaiah 24:3-4 is drought, and is the consequences of disobedience or sin against God. Deuteronomy 11:17, Deuteronomy 28:24, Zechariah 14:17. Isaiah also prophesied another form of drought, or extreme heat in Isaiah 24:6. The Book of Revelation speaks of the same end time events and predicts extreme weather, as the USA and the entire world is experiencing as part of God's judgement upon the nations. There will be fierce and scorching heat.Revelation 16:8-9. If you haven't repented of your sins, or turned away from sin, and turned to Jesus Christ, the living God, I urge you to do so now while there is still time.
Drought Expands Throughout USA

Still reeling from devastating drought that led to at least $10 billion in agricultural losses across Texas and the South in 2011, the nation is enduring more unusually parched weather.

A mostly dry, mild winter has put nearly 61% of the lower 48 states in "abnormally dry" or drought conditions, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, a weekly federal tracking of drought. That's the highest percentage of dry or drought conditions since September 2007, when 61.5% of the country was listed in those categories.

Only two states — Ohio and Alaska — are entirely free of abnormally dry or drought conditions, according to the Drought Monitor.

The drought is expanding into some areas where dryness is rare, such as New England.

"Conditions are starting to worry us now," said Keith Eggleston , a climatologist with the Northeast Regional Climate Center in Ithaca, N.Y.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, stream flow levels are at record or near-record lows in much of New England. The Drought Monitor lists all of Vermont as "abnormally dry," just six months after the state's wettest August on record that stemmed mainly from disastrous flooding by the remnants of Hurricane Irene.

So far this year, Connecticut has endured its driest January-March period ever, Weather Channel meteorologist Jonathan Erdman reports. This followed the state's wettest year on record.

The drought is mainly an agricultural concern in the Northeast at this point, says Eggleston. While agricultural conditions in the Northeast could be perilous if the dry weather continues as the growing season kicks off, water shortages for the public shouldn't be an issue, as most reservoirs were near or at capacity due to the early-season snowmelt and thaw, and to wetter conditions in the past, the Drought Monitor reported.
