Due 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.
