Item 5.           Other Events
-------           ------------

                           ONEOK, Inc. today announced it will take a
                  non-recurring charge of 18 cents per share of common stock in
                  the fourth-quarter as the result of an order from the Oklahoma
                  Corporation Commission (OCC) that unfairly denied Oklahoma
                  Natural Gas Company (ONG), a division of ONEOK, the right to
                  collect outstanding gas costs incurred while serving customers
                  last winter. ONG has appealed the order to the Oklahoma
                  Supreme Court.

                           ONG's recovery of last winter's gas costs through its
                  billing process has been delayed by the OCC. The order halts
                  that recovery process effective December 1, 2001, leaving ONG
                  with an estimated $34.6 million in gas costs yet to be
                  recovered. The company has requested and expects to receive a
                  stay of the order that will permit the company to collect the
                  money subject to refund. However, if the appeal is not
                  successful, the company would have to refund the money to its
                  customers with interest. The exact amount to be charged to
                  earnings will be based on collections through the end of
