The RECOVERY EFFORT is ongoing in Texas along with Search and Rescue/Recovery efforts in Florida. Wow, what a NIGHTMARE all this has been. Tack on the FIRES out west and northwest and you can see events can get out of control. Seeing all of this and now having discussions concerning these issues should open many eyes to the level of Readiness/Preparedness we all should attain. This will be difficult for some but overall, if you at least discuss these issues with family, friends, employees, students, and co-workers, you will have planted that seed so to speak of getting folks mentally prepared for virtually anything that could happen. REMEMBER- What to do, starts with you!!
WEATHERWISE, we are warning up and as winds increase and we continue to see NO precipitation, the FIRE DANGER will increase. Be extremely careful utilizing anything related to fire. Here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;
Thursday-Sunny, with a high near 95. South wind 6 to 13 mph.
Thursday Night-Clear, with a low around 71. South southeast wind around 11 mph.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
