High Winds + Dry Air = Constant Smell of Smoke, Itchy Eyeballs for Tulsans

leave a comment »

Green Country is indeed greening up, for how long is anyone’s guess, though as extremely parched Tulsans warily watch the weather for signs of rain. A mixed blessing of course, because Spring rains also bring the threat of violent winds, hail, and tornadoes. The gale force gusts are spreading fire quickly and easily, leading to a complete outdoor burn ban and an emergency fire watch in most of the surrounding counties. The air is laden with a smoky haze as fires continue to pop up around the Tulsa area; two homes burned down in South Tulsa two days ago, while a brush fire on Turkey Mountain threatened to spread out of control yesterday.

Some tips: do not drive into smoke, drop cigarette butts outside, have a cookout, burn debris, or pour gasoline into a big pool and light it and dance around. Those are all dangerous activities.
