My scoop on the impacts of droughts

the impact of droughts has a huge cause on everything invovled with people because it is a main necessity for daily living. droughts cause people to not have this necessity and it extremely effects their way of living.

 

A drought can cause agriculture, industry, and household depression because these all use a huge surplus amount of water. A drought would also cause a huge depression in money because then we have to spend money to change salt water into useable water. they do this through a system called desalination.

 

Another impact of droughts would be the fact that peoples crops become ruined and they have no way of making money. Also people on wells will have to watch how much water they use in their households because there is a possiblity that they can run out. Droughts have a bigger impact on peoples life than you may think.
