    • Meteorological- This kind of drought happen when there is a long time with little or no rain. Meteorological drought usually happens before all of the other kinds of drought.
    • Agricultural- These droughts are droughts that are bad for places that grow our food. This kind can also happen just from any change in how much it rains.
    • Hydrological- This kind of drought happens when the places we keep extra water like lakes and reservoirs, get a little bit lower than they are supposed to be.
