NOAA’s National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) recently launched an Instagram account. Instagram users can follow NIDIS at @NOAADrought to get the latest current news, conditions, and outlooks wherever they are. Follow us to stay up to date on drought in your region and beyond. 

NIDIS’s social media is part of our broader effort to provide the best available information to improve the nation’s capacity to proactively manage drought risk. NIDIS also adopted a new username on its existing X and Facebook profiles. Follow us @NOAADrought on InstagramX, and Facebook to receive the latest news and updates about drought in the United States and its territories.
