An overabundance of natural gas is pushing prices down, creating economic uncertainty for producers, with little prospect of a quick recovery. Making Oklahoma a little more green in some places you might not expect. We'll take you to a company in Shawnee to find out why it's been a success for more than 100 years. And travelling Highway 9 through "tornado alley" leads to the country's center for storm prediction. All that and more, next on ONR.

Ken Burns Dust Bowl Pt 1

Featured in Top Stories

Poor farm land conservation, drought and high winds came together in the southern plains in the 1930's to create an environmental disaster of unprecedented proportions: the dust bowl. April fourteenth is the anniversary of the day that most dramatically illustrated the devastation suffered during the dirty thirties: Black Sunday was April 14, 1935. The dust bowl is the latest historical documentary film directed and produced by Ken Burns for PBS. It will air on OETA in November. Dick Pryor talked to Ken Burns, and asked him why he chose to do a documentary on "The Dust Bowl."

Asthma and Insurance

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma is one of the most challenging places to live for those suffering from allergies and asthma. This year, Oklahoma City jumped from 22nd to 6th in the allergy foundation of America’s spring allergy rankings. Allergy and asthma symptoms can range from mild to severe--and an allergic reaction that is slightly inconvenient for some people, may be fatal for others.

Drought in Doubt

Featured in Top Stories

A few days of steady, soaking rain have helped dramatically reduce the area of Oklahoma suffering from moderate to exceptional drought. Smaller storms earlier in the year provided little relief to the most parched areas of the state, but recent rains have made a big difference. And, the rain couldn't have come at a better time for Oklahoma’s cattle...and wheat crop.

Fish Kill

Featured in Top Stories

It was sight no one had ever seen before, thousands of huge catfish lying dead on the sand bars of the red river. First reports blamed the obvious - the long hot summer coupled with a prolonged drought causing a lack of oxygen in the water. But eight months later, after tests on water samples in state and federal laboratories, the cause of the huge fish kill remains a mystery.

Earthquake Science

Dozens of aftershocks and hundreds of damage reports have poured in following the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Oklahoma. It has Oklahomans wondering whether dams, bridges and roads are still safe after all that shaking, as earthquakes are hitting a state more accustomed to dealing with tornadoes than temblors.

Evidence of the state's decaying infrastructure is visible at the state capitol, where the nearly century old structure is clearly showing its age. Call it a reverse brain drain. Nearly 90% of graduates of Oklahoma’s colleges and universities live and work in state one year after getting a diploma. Oklahoma's alcohol laws were put in place in 1959. The move has begun to make changes that will likely be decided by voters. We visit a dying city in its final days and look at the reason for its demise. And, comparing Oklahoma’s drought to extreme weather in Africa.

Drought Fire (9:19)

Featured in Top Stories

Temperatures may have dropped, but fire departments across the state are still feeling the heat. The drought that began last October was made worse by months of 100-plus heat, cooking up a cruel summer for firefighters. The spread of wildfires across the state is only the latest in a string of disasters to hit Oklahoma. We talk to Albert Ashwood, Director of the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management about that agency's response.
