OKLAHOMA CITY – Due to continued severe heat and drouth conditions statewide, Gov. Mary Fallin signed an amendment Wednesday to the state of emergency that was declared last month. The amended declaration now includes all 77 Oklahoma counties.

While some counties are affected more than others by the heat and drought hitting the state, all counties are currently experiencing drought conditions and forecasts show these conditions will continue to worsen for all portions of Oklahoma.

This Executive Order is a proactive measure to ensure Oklahoma is eligible for any and all federal assistance that may be available.
