Oklahoma hasn't recorded a tornado this year but may soon

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — This year's weather on the Southern Plains has an odd twist: Oklahoma has yet to record its first tornado, the deepest into the year it's gone without one since 1962. Although a drought has dried up moisture needed to fuel storms, state climatologist Gary McManus also attributes the streak to "dumb luck." Twisters already have hit the Texas Panhandle and western Arkansas, mere miles away.
