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.
12-15-06 Counterfeit bills are causing problems for Ardmore. A clerk at the Pro-Mart near 12th and Washington went to count money in the register when she realized two 20 dollar bills felt strange. She called the police who then confirmed that the bills were counterfeit. The bank discovered another counterfeit bill in the store's deposit bag the night before. Officials are looking at surveillance video to narrow the list of suspects. Store clerks are now making a special effort to make sure each bill is in fact real.
