Was Kansas the state most affected by the dust bowl?

Southwest Kansas and the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles were affected most by the Dust Bowl. The dust bowl winds began in 1932 but the Dust Bowl got its name from the horrendous winds beginning in 1935. The primary area it effected was the southern Plains. The northern Plains were not hit so badly but the drought, the blowing dust, and the decline of agriculture in the region had a nationwide effect.
