Title: U.S. Drought Portal
Url: https://www.drought.gov/drought/
Publisher: National Integrated Drought Information System (U.S.)
Description: The National Integrated Drought Information System was signed into existence in 2006 by President George W. Bush, and it aims to provide guidance in preparing for drought in the 21st century. This official U.S. government web portal is loaded with colorful maps, charts and graphs, and that's just on the homepage. The "U.S. Drought Monitor" is a map on the homepage with the intensity of the drought conditions indicated by color, from abnormally dry to drought - exceptional. On the same map there are links to the answers to the following queries: "Where are Drought Conditions Now?", "How is the Drought Affecting Me?", and "Will the Drought Continue?" The "Education" link on the menu across the top of the page leads visitors to "Drought for General Audiences" and "Drought for K-12 and Above". Visitors interested in helping monitor precipitation in their own communities should check out CoCoRaHS, which is the "Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow Network". The link to that organization is provided in the "Drought for General Audiences" section.
