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.
STRINGTOWN, OK - Mack Alford Correctional Center officials say the convicted murderer who escaped last week climbed over the 14-foot razor wire fence.
Officials say Jason Bales escaped around 6:30 last Monday morning. He was at his on-site job...which was still inside the fence. Officials believe he was able to slip away from the guards because it was dark.
The Department of Corrections is assessing and adding more razor wire to weak spots in prison fences across the state.
