They have said that these areas are hardest hit and there is very little hope for relief.

These regions are worst hit, and as a result, it has left all the farmers, water planners, and ranchers in a very difficult situation.
According to the Brain Fuchs, who is the climatologist with the National Drought Mitigation Center in Nebraska said, “We’ve been on this pattern where conditions have dried out, we haven’t seen much relief through last summer or into the winter months, and here we are going into the summer of 2018 with over two-thirds of the region already in drought. So that’s alarming, to say the least.”
Fuchs said that these four states are now seeing the record to record dryness. The climate temperature is now warmer than average, and the soil gets dried up, and the demand for the water also increases. As the region’s resources are now strained, the official has said that the pressure on states in the SouthWest to wrap-up the long-delayed emergency plans for the shortages which are along Colorado River.
