Yes, but now that we live in a global economy, droughts in one country affect everyone. Add to that speculation driving prices up even further, and you're likely to see rood riots, much like what happened during the rice shortage of 2008.Droughts have a long history in the US, and the world for that matter.
Nothing unusual but it does suck for those living through it.
Good news though, Its been far worse than it is today.
