Top 10 Broken Arrow Stories for June 2023


By John Dobberstein, Editor

June was a big news month for Broken Arrow and the south Tulsa area, from the good news to bad news and everything in between.

Thousands of line workers and utility personnel from across the U.S. descended on the region after the massive windstorm knocked out power to more than 200,000 people and damaged a substantial amount of PSO’s energy grid. Storm debris cleanup is still ongoing in Broken Arrow, Tulsa and elsewhere.

Broken Arrow once again landed a national ranking for the best places to live in the U.S., and the Broken Arrow City Council filled its vacancy with the appointment of Justin Green for 2 years. Green is believed to be the first African American to ever serve on the City Council.
