Romanian translation:seceta (din timpul depresiei economice americane)
Explanation:
Este probabil vorba despre seceta (dust bowl) care a avut loc in cateva state de şes (plain states)din America (Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas,etc.) in anii 1934-35 mulţi dintre locuitorii-/farmers acestor state au migrat în California în căutare de lucru.

Anca, dar in contextul respectiv (probabil un film sau un text literar) nu prea vad cum includem "explicatiile in paranteza". Idea in context e ca "the father moved to CA during the dust fall period"- In this case, I think it would be a case of flexibility rather than rigidity of translation .. We'll leave "the historians" decide .
