Oklahoma Blizzard 2009

Well the snow has ended across SW Oklahoma this evening,
but the impacts of the blizzard still continue, and will for the next
several days.

Electric Utility Providers continue to report many power outages
across the state. Approximately 500 remain without power in the
Tipton and Navajoe areas.

Roadways continue to be impassible due to snow and ice, or the
abandonded vehicles left in the roadways and ditches.

Gov. Brad Henry has declared a state of Emergency for all 77 counties
in the state, and a Presidential Declaration will probably be sought.

American Red Cross Chapters across the state are operating or assisting
with shelters. This is where you can help. As many are stranded during
their travels, or are without electric service and heat, your monetary
donation will help us provide shelters and food for those affected.

Please call 482-5303 or come by 905 N. Willard, Altus, OK to make your
donation. "Because help can't wait".
