January has sent wildfires through Texas. On Monday, a 2,500 acre fire broke out due to downed power lines in Parker County, forcing North Texas schools and homes to evacuate. Interstates 20 and 30 were closed down for several hours. Other smaller grassfires burned nearby as well.
Southern and Central Plains should seek caution as strong winds and warmer temperatures roll in tomorrow. The combination of dry brush, warmth, dry air and strong winds will worsen current fires and increase the chances to spark new wildfires.
Be aware and alert of fire danger in the Southern and Central Plain states tomorrow and tomorrow night.
As strong winds blow, expect delays across the Plains to the Great Lakes. Winds will affect your daily routine, power outages, broken tree limbs, and minor property damage. There’s also the possibility of trucks flipping over on highways and the amount of flights will be decreased, particularly in Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri, Chicago, Indianapolis, Milwaukee and eventually Detroit.

Last week, Papua New Guinea was shaken by a violent 7.5 magnitude earthquake, generating landslides and floods. The quake killed at least 15 people and injuring dozens more.
As Papua New Guinea was beginning to recover, another earthquake hit the small island today, measuring at magnitude 6.7 -- that’s the equivalent to California’s Northridge earthquake in 1994. Two more aftershocks followed -- 5.0 and 5.1. Bringing the death toll to at least 67 people killed from the earthquakes in Papua New Guinea. Around 150,000 people require aid after these earthquakes and aftershocks.
