Tulsa, Okla. - It was cold, dark, and gloomy in Tulsa for the past couple of days, but it paid off with a good, soaking rainfall, which News on 6 meteorologist Travis Meyer says will go a long way to erasing the stubborn drought.
"After several days of rain, between about one to two inches of rain fell around the Tulsa area," Travis said. "The drought came out officially today with its index, but that won't account for the rain of the last few days, but we can say that it's almost over with."
Areas just southwest of Tulsa, such as Sapulpa and Okmulgee, saw slightly larger rainfall totals in the range of two to three inches.
Travis says the McAlester region got the heaviest rainfall in eastern Oklahoma, with four or possible five inches of rain.
