Didn't know if I should put this in breaking news or fragile earth....

I haven't heard anything about this on the news yet.

Here is one article on wildfires in texas
www.dallasnews.com...


According to this myhighplains.com... which is local news for Texas there are several fires in several places, evacuations taking place and people losing power.

And to top it all off here is the weather outlook for the area www.srh.noaa.gov... wind gusts upto 35mph !!

Here is something from the texas forest service from feb 11 txforestservice.tamu.edu... It seems this has been going on for a while and is starting to get out of hand. Also causing accidents and burning down homes. hosted.ap.org... www.reporternews.com...

Again, I haven't heard this on the news and did an ATS search and nothing came up. Anyone down there in Texas, stay safe.

What’s coming today:

· A powerful storm system will threaten West Texas today. National Weather Service is predicting damaging winds of 35 to 45 mph with gusts possibly exceeding 60 mph. Extremely critical fire danger is anticipated with thick blowing dust and visibility of 1 mile or less.

· Expect:

o Rapid rates of spread

o Very intense burning

o Winds that trump fuel moisture

o Active burning to extend into the night

o Wind shift in South Texas tonight

I live in Lubbock and there are several wildfires in our region. Plus, the sky was thick with red dust all day. Never went out into it but that stuff seems to creep in through any way it can!! Hope it is better tomorrow as I MUST run some errands....
