Drought in North Dakota

A drought in Southeastern North Dakota has damaged a number of crops.

About half of one farmer's wheat crop in Lisbon has been destroyed because it's too dry, and other crops like corn and soybeans are also suffering.

Lisbon has only gotten about three-quarters of an inch of rain so far this month. This year's rainfall is down by three inches, compared to last year.

Cattle farmers are also feeling the effects of the dry weather.

But for now all the farmers are keeping an eye to the sky and hoping for rain.
