||California’s 5-year drought persisted while new areas of extreme drought developed in states across the Northeast and Southeast. The drought in California has damaged forests where over 100 million trees have perished creating a public safety hazard. Agricultural impacts were reduced in California but agricultural impacts developed in the Northeast and Southeast due to stressed water supplies.

||Drought conditions continued to affect California throughout 2015, heavily impacting the agricultural sector. Drought conditions improved in Texas and Oklahoma due to several major flood events.
||Ariz., Calif., Idaho, Mont., Nev., Ore., Utah, Wash.
||Historic drought conditions affected the majority of California for all of 2014, making it the worst drought on record for the state. Surrounding states and parts of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas also experienced continued severe drought conditions. This is a continuation of drought conditions that have persisted for several years.
||Ariz., Calif., Kan., Nev., N.M, Okla., Ore., Texas.
||The 2013 drought slowly dissipated from the historic levels of the 2012 drought, as conditions improved across many Midwestern and Plains states. However, moderate to extreme drought did remain or expand into western states. In comparison to 2011 and 2012 drought conditions the US experienced only moderate crop losses across the central agriculture states.

||The 2012 drought was the most extensive drought to affect the U.S. since the 1930s. Moderate to extreme drought conditions affected more than half the country for a majority of 2012. Costly drought impacts occurred across the central agriculture states resulting in widespread harvest failure for corn, sorghum and soybean crops, among others. The associated summer heatwave also caused 123 direct deaths, but an estimate of the excess mortality due to heat stress is still unknown.

||Drought and heat wave conditions created major impacts for affected areas. In Texas and Oklahoma, a majority of range and pastures were classified in “very poor” condition for much of the 2011 crop growing season.
||Ariz., Kan., La., N.M., Okla., Texas
||Drought conditions occurred during much of the year across parts of the Southwest, Great Plains, and southern Texas causing agricultural losses in numerous states. The largest agriculture losses occurred in Texas and California.
||Ariz., Calif., Kan., N.M., Okla., Texas
||Severe drought and heat caused agricultural losses in areas of the South and West. Record low lake levels also occurred in areas of the Southeast.
||Calif., Ga., N.C., S.C., Tenn., Texas
||Severe drought with periods of extreme heat over most of the Southeast and parts of the Great Plains, Ohio Valley, and Great Lakes area reduced crop yields, stream flows and lake levels.

||Severe drought affected crops in the Great Plains and across portions of the South and far West.
||Ala., Ark., Calif., Colo., Fla., Ga., Iowa, Kan., La., Minn., Miss., Mo., Mont., Neb., N.M., N.D., Okla., S.D., Texas, Wyo.
||Severe localized drought caused significant crop losses, especially for corn and soybeans.
||Ark., Ill., Ind., Mo., Ohio, Wis.
||Moderate to extreme drought was experienced over large portions of 30 states, including the West, Great Plains, and much of the eastern U.S.

||Severe drought and persistent heat over south-central and southeastern states caused significant losses to agriculture and related industries.
