Overview

Miami is located in northeastern Oklahoma in Ottawa County. The region is primarily agricultural and has large tribal populations in and around the city. Miami is prone to flooding from heavy rainfall events and frequently affected by drought, winter storms, and severe thunderstorms. The City has been devoting attention to extreme weather events since major flooding occurred in 2007, though little to no discussion of climate change had occurred among city officials prior to the start of this project.
