Drought is a recurring feature of nearly every climate on the planet. In many parts of the world, including North America, we have very little ability to predict exactly when drought will happen next. But if we look at history and climate data, we can be sure that drought will happen again at some point. University of Nebraska–Lincoln Extension manages a website for help in dealing with drought in the region.
