Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : Texas Fire Alerts and Lake Conroe

Texas Fire Alerts and Lake Conroe

Texas Fire AlertsDue to the winds blowing through a dry and  drought laden Texas Area, State Agencies are preparing an alert for our area. With the drought leaving behind dry grass, dead trees and dry water holes the potential of Wild Fires is skyrocketing.


Winds are kicking up to the 60 mile an hour range which increases the probability of spreading fires.

Local emergency responders are on alert being reminded of the previous 1.5 million acres of Texas that has burned in the last few months.

If you live in a highly affected area of the drought it is recommended that you place your goods and easy escape plans on high alert. We are day three into the Possum Kingdom Lake Wildfires which is located about 70 miles west of Fort Worth. 6500 acres and 40 homes have now been destroyed due to the uncontrolled Fires.


What does this mean to Lake Conroe? It means we must be watching and being exceptionally careful. If you are working on an outside grill please watch over it carefully. Do not throw cigarettes out your car window. Keep an eye open for smoke off in the distance and in our Piney Woods.

Many homes have been evacuated with the other 840 fires that surround our area and to become ready is a necessity. Better safe than sorry my friends. Be aware.

I love you Texas and I'm so sorry we have to go through this together.

It's just too hot in Texas these days Deb!  I hope we don't get another round of fires.  We needs some RAIN!  I am going to start dancing and praying now :)!

Deb-Fire is such a terrible thing. I hope they get them under control soon and I will pray for rain for the area. How are you feeling? Better I hope. Be safe my friend

I've never close enough to have to evacuate, but the smoke has stiffled me from Georgia fires.  I pray for everyone in Texas and Oklahoma in the path of these fires and all those brave firefighters.

HI Deb, what is with Texas having all the wildfires this year instead of California?  I guess a drought like we have had will do that to you.  It is a shame, some of these fires possibly could have been prevented if people would head the warnings you listed.  I know the fire that took place earlier in the Summer at Possum Kingdom was started by a lighting strike, but I think some were also contributed to cigarrette....I think those that toss the cig butts out the window of a car and it ends up starting a forest fire, aught to face the same prosecution as if they committed a very severe crime, even murder in some cases where a firefighter lost their life.  "Don't Mess With Texas"

Oh, Deb, I'll bet this wasn't on your list of fun "to dos" while lying in bed getting better. These types of disasters make my heart hurt, for the wildlife and nature. Anyone who believes in the power of prayer take a moment. It works.

Deb - this drought is a crisis - and Texas has received more than its share of wildfires - Louisiana is also stricken with drougt - I don't know about you - but when the East coast was receiving 10-12 inches of rain - I was praying we would get 1/2 of that!  Praying for all of Texas -

I can't say that I would really wish a hurricane on anyone, but massive amounts of water might seem like a God-send right about now.  And fact of the matter is, too much would really be harmful . . . keep us posted (so to speak :) )

Deb, This is a great post.  Although temps are expected to get into the upper 50's by next week everything is way too dry and I for one don't want a visit from the fire department. Lake Conroe Home Loan Expert Henry J Daniels  I remember the last rain storm we had by the lake.  Even though it Rained about an inch the lightening was setting trees on fire and there were a rash of calls according to the Montgomery County Police reporter.  It's amazing at some of the things you read there.  This weekend is NOT a smok 'em if you got'em, weekend!  Everybody Be Save out there.
