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.
HUGO, OK -- Volunteers came together to raise a wall this morning -- marking the beginning of a much needed venue.
The South Central District Association of the General Baptist Convention of Oklahoma in Hugo has been raising money for a new church for five years.
They've raised about $150,000 and are still working toward raising another $92,000. The new building will be built solely by volunteers. It will serve as a gathering place for all Hugo's churches and the community.
If you'd like to donate contact Moderator Rev. Larry Alberty (580) 326-8542 or Allen webster (580) 317-6399.
