Drought Pulls Back Slightly in Latest Oklahoma Drought Monitor Report

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 06:17:21 CDT

Drought Pulls Back Slightly in Latest Oklahoma Drought Monitor Report Drought in Oklahoma retreats slightly in the latest US Drought Monitor report- According to Gary McManus with the Oklahoma Climatological Survey, "We didn't get a ton of rain before the Tuesday morning cutoff, but what we did get helped make improvements in several areas of the state. Still looking good over in far eastern Oklahoma, but we still have problems building across far southern Oklahoma. The percentage of the state covered by D3-D4 drought dropped from 53.24% to 48.47%, so good news there, and losing that strip of D4 in Ellis County and down in Roger Mills and Beckham counties dropped the D4 amount alone to 14.48%. The amount of the state without drought (D-Nada, or the white area, and D0, which is technically not a drought category) rose to about 21% of the state."
