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.
3-10-04 - There are new concerns of the Golden Algae threat in Lake Texoma, as a new fish kill has been discovered in another part of the lake. More than 1,000 fish have died along a 5-mile stretch of shoreline near the Mill Creek area.
The discovery has wildlife specialists scrambling for answers but the reality is there is little they can do.
The oxygen-stealing algae has already been found in Lake Texoma, but the fish kills were confined to the Lebanon pool, on the Oklahoma side.
Experts say the only chance of saving the lake's fish, and the livelihood of fisherman, is mother nature. Warmer temperatures and Green algae this summer could be enough to kill off the Golden algae.
