Latest Drought Monitor Map Removes Exceptional Drought Designation From Oklahoma But Adds Many Other Shades of Drought

Latest Drought Monitor Map Removes Exceptional Drought Designation From Oklahoma But Adds Many Other Shades of Drought Reviewing the latest U.S. Drought Monitor map the good news is Oklahoma has no more of the dreaded dark red shaded (D4) exceptional drought thanks to recent storms.

The bad news Oklahoma has more shades of all drought colors and now almost 67 percent of the state is suffering from (D0-D3) drought. Last week that number was 65 percent.

About the only parts of Oklahoma not experiencing drought is in the south and southeast.

Tulsa measured only .11 inches of precipitation in June, the driest June since records started in 1893.

Last weekend’s rainstorms were spotty and nature and certainly helped northern Texas and the western Oklahoma Panhandle.

Currently there are more than 1.6 million Oklahomans suffering drought.

Nationwide, about half the country is experiencing some degree of drought impacting more than 32 million people.
