THE DUST BOWL, SBS One 8.35pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Friday -

THIS is weather like you’ve never seen. Dust storms 320km wide. It’s 1933 and the drought is a year old. By 1934, 46 of the 48 US states will be in drought. Banks are start­ing to fore­close as well. A huge storm moves east and dumps 5500 tonnes of dust on Chicago. When dust makes its way into the White House, the east coast fi­nally starts ask­ing what’s hap­pen­ing in the Great Plains.
