Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
4-1-05 – In what is becoming a growing problem in Oklahoma, the city of Healdton is looking for an unregistered sex offender. Sex offenders are required to re-register with the state every time they move, but sometimes find ways around it.
In Healdton, police were alerted about a sex offender living next door to the caller. When they went to arrest him, he was gone. Police are not releasing the man’s name.
The state says sex offenders can jump from one small town to another without authorities ever knowing they are there.
The state is considering a program where one officer would be devoted to sex offenders at every PD.
