The United States has not been as dry as it is now in almost 5 years, USA Today reported April 12.

Still reeling from devastating drought in 2011 that led to at least $10 billion in agricultural losses across Texas and the South, the nation is enduring another unusually parched year.

A mostly dry, mild winter put nearly 61 percent of the lower 48 states in “abnormally dry” or drought conditions, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, a weekly federal tracking of drought.

Only two states — Ohio and Alaska — are entirely free of abnormally dry or drought conditions. The drought is expanding into some areas where dryness is rare.

One of the causes of the winter dryness was a weak La Niña, a climate pattern in the Pacific that affects weather in the USA and around the world, Miskus reports. La Niña tends to bring dry conditions to the southern tier of the nation.
