Southern Nevada has been in a drought for about 20 years.
But now, we’re learning this isn’t just drought – it’s a megadrought. That’s a one in 500 years drought.
KENSINGTON, Maryland (AP) — A new study finds that much of the western United States is baking in what scientists call an emerging megadrought.
After last winter’s rains, Californians breathed a collective sigh of relief.
Mild temperatures this week have been a welcome relief from one of the hottest summers on record in Las Vegas.
But don’t let that fool you.
A new study says the Southwest region of the United States faces the threat of megadroughts this century as temperatures rise.
Researchers found the risk is reduced if heat-trapping gases are curbed.
