Texas Drought And Wildfires: Before And After The Severe Weather (INTERACTIVE PHOTO)
share this story
Texas is dry. Really dry.
Slide your mouse left and right on the first image below to view Lake Whitney in North Central Texas before and after the wildfires and drought.
A fire near the lake "destroyed six homes and several structures" last Thursday, according to the Associated Press.
The first, greener-looking image shows the lake in 2008. The second image shows the lake after the Texas wildfires: both the shoreline expands and the greenery fades away.
The other photos show the impact of the severe weather on two other locations in Texas: Sweetwater and Bastrop.
