A farmer holds up dried corn kernels, donated by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) food reserves, during a distribution of food aid to families affected by the drought in the village of Orocuina, August 28, 2014. A severe drought has ravaged crops in Central America and as many as 2.81 million people are struggling to feed themselves, the United Nations WFP said on Friday, though the region's coffee crop has been largely unscathed. The drought, which is also affecting South America, has been particularly hard on the so-called "dry corridor" of Central America, which includes southern Guatemala, northern Honduras and western El Salvador. "The drought has killed us. We lost all our corn and beans," said Olman Funez, a 22-year-old farmer who lives in Orocuina, a rural town in southern Honduras. Picture taken August 28, 2014.

The economy of Parachute, with a current population of approximately 1000 people, was devastated when thousands of workers lost their jobs on "Black Sunday" in 1982, after Exxon terminated the Colony Shale Oil Project. The current rise of hydraulic fracking in natural gas retrieval has given a cautious hope to the town's inhabitants, who know market demand and price can effect their local economy.
