Drought conditions continue to worsen and
expand across Oklahoma.
The U.S. Drought Monitor report released Thursday shows
exceptional drought - the worst possible category - covering most
of western Oklahoma and a swath of northeastern Oklahoma.
Nearly all other areas of the state are in extreme drought - the
exceptions being severe drought in small parts of southeastern
Oklahoma and the Panhandle.
The report is released each Thursday and is based on an analysis
of conditions reported through Tuesday.
