Statewide Burn Ban Now In Effect Per OFS Website

Okiedawn OK Zone 7August 3, 2012

According to the website of the OFS, a Governor's Burn Ban is in effect for the entire state.

I haven't seen an official press release from OFS or the Governor's office yet or any sort of announcement in the media, but there the map is (linked below) all lit up in red. Earlier this morning it still showed the yellow county bans.

This is great news because it is critically dry and we have Critical Fire Weather today and tomorrow. Some counties have not been able to meet all 4 requirments for county-issued bans, and this helps those counties tremendously.

Since the burn ban guidelines under the Governor's Statewide Burn Ban may differ from previous guidelines under individual county burn bans that were in effect, I've linked the updated statewide guidelines below.
