Rains Have Helped, But We Need Much More

U.S. Drought Monitor

Every drop of rain helps, but we need much more. That is according to the latest U.S. Drought Monitor report released for Oklahoma.

The report shows 94% of the state in drought or abnormally dry conditions. The worst drought is in the panhandle and portions of northern Oklahoma, including southern Tulsa County and all of Creek and Wagoner Counties. Only far southwest Oklahoma is experiencing normal conditions.

The latest report was released before Tuesday night and Wednesday morning's heavy rain. More rain is in the forecast for this weekend.
