Increased susceptibility to wildfires during droughts threatens roads and other transportation infrastructure directly, or cause road closures due to fire threat or reduced visibility such as has occurred in Florida and California in recent years.

  The drought in the American southwest triggered a widespread die-off of forests around the region. A team of scientists developed a new modeling tool .

The floods that affected Texas from March to June resulted in major business disruption due to the loss of Cited by: 6.

Drought differs from other natural disasters in its slowness of onset and its commonly lengthy duration. The severity of the drought depends upon its duration, the degree of moisture deficiency, and the size of the affected area. Drought is a hazard that requires many months to emerge and that may persist for many months or years thereafter.   [Click photos to view larger versions.] The morning of April 9, dawned cool, breezy and decidedly gloomy across the Southern Plains. Thick fog descended like a blanket, reducing visibility to near zero in some locations. Patchy drizzle broke out from low, sullen clouds and fell as a fine mist over the expansive fields of sorghum.
