On #ThisDayinHistory 1935, “Black Sunday,” one of the most devastating storms of the 19 30s Dust Bowl era, swept across the region: High winds kicked up clouds of millions of tons of dirt and dust so dense and dark that some eyewitnesses believed the world was coming to an end #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Apr.15: The term “dust bowl” was reportedly coined by a reporter referring to the plains of western Kansas, southeastern Colorado, the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma, and northeastern New Mexico. By the early 1930s, the grassy plains of this region had been over-plowed by farmers and overgrazed by cattle and sheep #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8326 The resulting soil erosion, combined with an eight-year drought which began in 1931, created a dire situation for farmers and ranchers: Crops and businesses failed and an increasing number of dust storms made people and animals sick: Many residents fled the region in search of work in other states such as California, and those who remained behind struggled to support themselves…………….The Dust Bowl era finally came to a close when the rains arrived and the drought ended in 1939……………….Although drought would continue to be an inevitable part of life in the region, improved farming techniques significantly reduced the problem of soil erosion and prevented a repeat of the 1930 s Dust Bowl devastation. #DustBowl #BlackSunday #History #USHistory #GreatDepression #OTD
