Thanks all for the well wishes.
As an update...The towns of Manford, Drumright, Jennings, Hallett, Oak grove, Glencoe have been ordered to evacuate...
I have also heard that the town of luther is pretty much gone, also hearing the town of Manford is in bad shape, Blackhawk helicopters from the
national guard doing water drops right in the heart of the town..
thunderstorms formed east of the fire area and brought a small amount of rain but also caused the winds to change directions, weather forecast is
winds 15-20mph starting in the morning with temps forecast of 111 degrees...might prove to be a long day....at my house we got about about 10 minutes
Here are a few photos that I took of the smoke plume as seen from my house and some photos of the fire from the local news
