|Red dot on map of Oklahoma is the town of Bokoshe.|
Bokoshe, a town of 500, is near a coal-fired power plant near the Arkansas border. "Its toxic byproduct, coal ash, is trucked daily to a nearby dump, and when the wind blows through town, that ash rains down on its residents," ICN reports. "They believe it is to blame for the asthma and cancer that runs rampant there." The dump is not covered or lined. A third of Bokoshe's residents don't have health insurance and 40 percent have incomes below the poverty line.
