QUIZ 25: True or False… The Dust Bowl is a volcano in the USA?
False. The Dust Bowl in America is not a volcano. The Dust Bowl was caused by the introduction of new farming techniques, over farming to produce food for the war and a serious drought in the 1930’s. The top soil was removed and heavily deposited across the land, during major dust storms. Many people lost their farms, animals, machinery and lives.
