Scattered showers and storms could become strong to severe this afternoon into the evening. Primary threats are large hail and heavy rainfall causing flooding in poor drainage areas. Damaging winds are included as well and an isolated tornado possibility is very low but not eliminated.
ADA, OK -- Manufacturers and industrial partners from across Southeastern Oklahoma gathered in Ada today to learn how to grow their business.
Vice president of the Ada Jobs Foundation, Joe Hill, says today's forum featured speakers from the Oklahoma chamber of commerce, among other regional development specialists.
They helped break down state incentives programs, which can help existing companies grow, or help recruit new businesses to the area.
Hill said, "We want to improve the quality of life, you know, increase our tax-base here to basically help our citizens that we work for."
Hill says they were pleased with today's turn out, with businesses in attendance from Idabel, Seminole, Atoka, Tishomingo, and Ada.
