Western States in Drought, New Mexico Is Worst

Hosted by

Nevada, Colorado, Wyoming- all are experiencing drought, but New Mexico has been hit the hardest. The last three years have been the driest and warmest on record. New Mexico's water storage in reservoirs is just 17 percent of normal levels, and some people have to live on trucked-in water. Julie Cart, Pulitzer Prize-winning environmental reporter for the Los Angeles Times, explains how drought in New Mexico, Colorado, Montana and elsewhere is changing the landscape.
