Extreme Weather and Agriculture

Oklahoma is ranked number nine among top states that have suffered property losses from disasters in the last decade - considered the most at-risk states in the U.S. FEMA rates our state third in the number of disaster declarations since the mid-50's, behind only Texas and California. The extreme weather takes its toll in many ways, and here to discuss it and how it's affecting agriculture, natural resources and conservation are: Clay Pope, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts; Al Sutherland, OSU-Oklahoma Mesonet Agricultural Coordinator; Mike Thralls, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission; and, Mark Gregory, Area Extension Agronomy Specialist with the OSU Extension Office in southwest Oklahoma.

In this episode of the ONR, our reporters go in-depth on the stories swirling around this week's tornadoes, recapping the week and giving updates on the continuing efforts in Moore. Lis Exon digs into the question on the nation's mind-why do Oklahoma schools lack tornado shelters? And while the destruction in Moore is tragic, it wasn't the only community affected this week. Bob Sands explores the towns struck by Sunday's twisters and finds examples of the 'Oklahoma Standard.' Plus, a look at aid efforts, the National Guard on the scene, and a tribute to the first responders and volunteers, on this ONR.

In this episode of the ONR, we explore school security, and what measures lawmakers and educators are considering to keep area schools safe. In other nearby schools, the problem is less that of security and more of administrative funding. With a cap on administrative spending, some small school districts are considering merging administrations to save money. In our continuing drought coverage, we visit Altus-Lugert Lake in southwestern Oklahoma, where low water levels are affecting area agriculture. Plus, freshmen legislators, weekly capitol updates, old-school sky diving, Thunder fever and more on this ONR.
