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.
2-21-04 - Two random gunfire incidents at a Durant apartment complex have folks there on edge. The Crescent Creek Apartments were the scene of two drive-bys in less than 12 hours Saturday. No one was injured, but witnesses describe the two incidents as a "gun battle." Bullets hit cars, but no apartments.
Durant Police are not releasing much information, except that they are looking for three male suspects. The suspects could be armed with a shotgun.
