Effects of Texas Drought Could Be Felt for Years to Come, 08 Aug  Scientists predict the effects of a historic one-year drought in Texas could have profound ecological impacts that will be felt for years to come. Only about six inches of rain have fallen since January, compared with a norm of about 13 inches, making it the worst recorded drought in the state's history. Compounded by weeks of record heat, many parts of Texas have seen reservoirs evaporate, large-scale crop failure, and animal die-offs. At least seven reservoirs are effectively dry, and more than half of the state's 3,700 streams and 15 large rivers are below normal rates. topic
