International Drought (6:03)

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma is deep into a multi-year drought. That word drought has a different meaning depending on where in the world it's occurring. For Oklahomans drought causes a variety of problems, especially for agriculture. But, in parts of Africa, it's a matter of life and death. The reporter on this story, Alex Chamwada, has been one of the most recognizable television journalists in Kenya for more than a decade. He's visiting Oklahoma through a state department project at Oklahoma State University.

It was almost a century ago that a mining camp was established in far northeastern Oklahoma, in an area that would become the town of Picher. By the 1920's Picher was the center of the largest lead and zinc mining operation in the nation. But now, Picher does not exist. The town died from contamination, by-products of mining, which forced the federal government to close Picher and relocate its residents. And while almost all the people are gone, much of the hazard still remains.

Living without AC (5:23)

Featured in Top Stories

The extreme heat brings a double dose of discomfort. Being outside in stifling temperatures is bad enough, but if you stay inside where it's air conditioned, soaring electric bills are the price you pay for relief. It's even worse for thousands of people who either lack air conditioning or have just enough to make one or two rooms livable. That means finding someplace, anyplace, to stay cool during the day and waiting until late in the evening for the house to cool off enough to get a night's sleep.

WHILE WATER QUALITY IS A CONCERN IN EASTERN OKLAHOMA, WATER QUANTITY IS THE PROBLEM OUT WEST. MUCH OF THE STATE IS IN THE GRIP OF A DROUGHT OF HISTORIC PROPORTIONS. SEARING, UNRELENTING HEAT IS TAKING ITS TOLL. WHEAT CROPS IN WESTERN OKLAHOMA WERE NEARLY A TOTAL LOSS THIS SEASON AND DROUGHT CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO CAUSE DAMAGES EXCEEDING 3-BILLION DOLLARS ACROSS OKLAHOMA AND TEXAS. THE COST OF FEEDING LIVESTOCK IS HIGH AND RANCHERS DON'T WANT TO PAY TO FEED THEIR CATTLE ANYMORE. THAT MEANS THE SELL OFF HAS BEGUN.
