The Great Dust Storm
34
1930s Dust Bowl
  • "Dust Bowl" was a term born in the hard times
    from the people who lived in the drought-stricken
    region during the great depression.

35
The "Dust Bowl Days", also known as the "Dirty
Thirties", took its toll on Oklahoma and other
Great Plains states. The decade was full of
extremes blizzards, tornadoes, floods, droughts,
and dirt storms.

The Storms
  • In 1934 to 1936, three record drought years were
    marked for the nation. In 1936, a more severe
    storm spread out of the plains and across most of
    the nation. The drought years were accompanied
    with record breaking heavy rains, blizzards,
    tornadoes and floods.

Another Dust Storm

  • In 1935, the weather in the Dust Bowl again made
    the national headlines. This storm was followed
    by another and yet another in rapid succession.
    In late March a severe storm lashed Boise City so
    hard that many people were stranded for hours. No
    one dared to leave a store and head for home
    although it might be less than a block away.

Mother Children During the Dust Storms

  • During 1936, the number of dirt storms increased
    and the temperature broke the 1934 record high by
    soaring above 120 degrees. On one pleasant June
    day in 1936, the ground began to tremble. A sharp
    earthquake shook the land from Kenton to Perryton
    and from Liberal to Stratford.

43
  • The clouds appeared on the horizons with a
    thunderous roar. Turbulent dust clouds rolled in
    generally from the North and dumped a fine silt
    over the land. Men, women and children stayed in
    their houses and tied handkerchiefs over their
    noses and mouths.

44
When they dared to leave, they added goggles to
protect their eyes. Houses were shut tight, cloth
was wedged in the cracks of the doors and windows
but still the fine silt forced its way into
houses, schools and businesses. During the
storms, the air indoors was "swept" with wet
gunny sacks. Sponges were used as makeshift "dust
masks" and damp sheets were tied over the
beds.
