Picher, Oklahoma

 (JPG) Picher, Oklahoma (239,407 bytes) ( 1,176 x 1,118 )
Picher, Oklahoma once boasted 20,000 people in this mining town in northeast Oklahoma. Now, after a 2009 tornado, and a federal cleanup program, the town is a modern-day ghost town. Picher lies in the middle of the Tar Creek Superfund site, an expanse of lead- and zinc-mining towns that extends into Missouri and Kansas. But mine cave-ins, sinkholes, and a creek that flows orange from pollution have forced abandonment of Picher and the surrounding smaller towns. The image was acquired July 12, 2006, covers an area of 17.7 by 16.8 km, and is located at 37 degrees north latitude, 94.8 degrees west longitude.
