Projected weather expected to be wild

CHICKASHA —

"The roller coaster ride continues," Dale Thompson, Grady County Emergency Management Director said in response to the weather and fires that have taken the county on a windy, fiery ride over the past week. 

On Sunday night, wind speeds reached 50 mph, Thompson said citing OK Mesonet.  

As has been the trend over the past few weeks, several control burns got out of control. Thompson said that one of these, in the southwest Acme area, the property owner was likely unaware of the burn ban due to the time frame it occurred. The fire took place on Monday night. The burn ban was issued that morning. 

The Grady County Sheriff's Department has been aiding emergency management in spreading the word that Grady County is under a 30 day burn ban. 

The possibility of precipitation is still low with a slight chance of rain next week and a possible light dusting of snow early this week. Neither is expected to make much difference in the drought, Thompson said. 

In other business: 

The monthly report for the Grady County Health Department was approved. 

The 2014 Disaster Plan for the Grady County Court Clerk was approved. 

A motion to accept the application for permits from Enable Gas Gathering LLC, permits to cross with a gas pipeline,  a county road or highway, County Road NS 298 between the  SE/4 of Section 35 and the SW/4 of Section 36-T7N-R5W was approved.
