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.
FANNIN COUNTY, OK -- Lake Fannin may be a step closer to re-opening.
According to Fannin County Judge Spanky Carter, "We're very lucky to have congressman hall helping us in this and I think he wants to help us. I know he wants to help us and I know he will helps us and so we just have to figure out a way to make this deal happen."
After a 1, 400 signature petition was presented to Judge Spanky Carter last month, he met with Congressman Ralph Hall to discuss options for opening the lake.
The most likely option would be a land swap.
Judge Carter says he believes it will be a long process, but says they can get it done.
The lake was locked last year by the Forest Service due to safety issues from hazardous Trees.
