Drought devastating corn crops

  • Expert: U.S. moving from 'crisis to horror story'
  • Worst drought in 50 years killing crops

The damage to the American corn crop gets worse every hour that goes by with no rain. 

HLN personal finance expert Jennifer Westhoven reports that 12 percent of the corn harvest has already been wiped out.  She says this has caused corn prices to explode.  They're already up 34 percent.   Ranchers will feel this in the price of feed for their herds... and we'll all feel it at the supermarket.

When will the drought end?
