Last month a dust storm caused near blackout conditions in northern Oklahoma. According to reports, nearly three dozen vehicles were involved in an accident, and several people were injured.
Janet Franco's insight:

One of the reasons the filmmaker felt the urgency to make "The Dust Bowl" was because there are so few remaining eyewitness to the catastrophic 1930s event, which caused by over-farming and severe drought. The Dust Bowl lasted for 10 years. As it happened the 1920s were unusually wet for the Midwest. Winds blew, picking up the dried-out soil and reating black blizzard. Dust ended up as far away as New York.

Janet Franco's insight:

There was more then 10 survivors and 3,000 viewers , they all attented public events where viewers told their stories. Futured survivor of the film, attented every event as a penlaist, sometimes driving 6 hours road trip. One memorabe event took place in the town of Woodward, which is close to what Ken refers to as "ground zero" for the Dust Bowl.
