We know it’s getting cold outside and everyone is starting to use their heaters, but please keep in mind not to plug space heaters into an extension cord or a power strip. We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend..

Please keep an eye on the weather. Remember, if high water on the road, “Turn Around, Don’t Drown!!!”

Weather updates will be located in the comments. Be safe! Turn Around Don't Drown!

Rain chances are on the increase today due to an upper level low pressure system and a cold front. Showers and storms will increase as the front gets farther southeast. A few storms may even become strong this afternoon with small hail and gusty winds, and a severe storm or two cannot be ruled out. Locally heavy rain may also produce flooding in some areas. We do not expect a repeat of last Sunday's event. Since the upper low will lag behind the front, showers and occasional embedded thunderstorms will continue across much of the region late this evening and overnight.

It's going to be a wet, brisk, and much cooler end to the week as a storm system affects the region and a strong cold front arrives later today. Showers and thunderstorms, some containing very heavy rainfall are expected to increase through the day today, then continue off and on tonight, before sliding east during the day Friday. Widespread rainfall totals of 1-3 inches will be possible, with isolated higher amounts that may result in isolated instances of flash flooding. In addition, a few points on area rivers may reach minor flood stage due to runoff from heavier rains.

Improving weather is expected after a chilly start Saturday with a few lingering showers in the far northeast parts of the area. By afternoon, decreasing clouds can be expected with highs recovering back into the 60s with a few readings near 70 in the West. Sunday looks even better! After a chilly start in the 40s with light winds, south breezes return under sunny skies. Highs will warm into the 70s area-wide!

After Sunday night's event with 9 tornadoes affecting North Texas, this is a good time to review Severe Weather Awareness. Sunday night is an example that severe weather/tornadoes can happen at any time of the year. October is our 2nd wettest month and also a transitional month like the spring tornado season.
It's truly amazing no one perished in the outbreak and no serious injuries. It's proven awareness saves lives. We also have to learn how to be responsible for our own situational awareness when severe weather threatens our area.
These are some links to great information. A NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio is your best form of communication, preferably one with the S.A.M.E programming feature. I've also provided a link to the Owlie Skywarn Program for children and a link to the Skywarn Program for additional information.
If anyone has any questions, please let me know! I'm always happy to help!
Thank you for all your support! Don't be scared, Be prepared!! …. H

This past Thursday, Indian Harbor VFD conducted vehicle extrication training. This included how to remove a hood, doors and roof along with how to open the truck. This was conducted with hydraulic spreaders and cutters, K12 saw and misc hand tools. This training is vital for the members to know so that they can cut a vehicle away from a patient in a timely manner while always keeping in mind the patients safety. Indian Harbor VFD would like to thank Acorn Towing for the use of their yard and providing the car for us to train on.

In light of yesterday’s tragic event in San Antonio, we would like to kindly remind everyone to move over when you observe an emergency vehicle (including tow trucks, TxDot trucks, Public Works, etc.) working on the side of the road.

If you cannot safely change lanes or move over, the law requires that you slow your vehicle down to 20 MPH below the posted speed limit. Do NOT brake abruptly, slowly and calmly depress your decelerator.

Today Commissioner’s and Hood County Judge approved a 90 day burn ban effective immediately. NO BURNING IS ALLOWED.

With school starting up this week, we just wanted to remind everyone about being extremely careful around school buses. If you see red lights flashing, please pay attention and stop.

A STOPPED SCHOOL BUS: WHAT DO I DO?

Texas State law requires that drivers stop when a school bus is operating a visual signal-either red flashing lights or extended stop arm (TRC 545.066). However, many Texas drivers are uncertain as to when they need to stop for a school bus.

Here are a few guidelines to reduce driver confusion, thus providing a safer environment for our children. #BackToSchoolSafety

08/08/2019

With the temperatures getting up into the 100’s and staying up there for most of the day, please remember to stay hydrated and if you can, limit your time outside. Also please remember do not leave your animals in your vehicle that is not running. The heat can be very deadly to them as to us. The most common signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion include:
Confusion.
Dark-colored urine (a sign of dehydration)
Dizziness.
Fainting.
Fatigue.
Headache.
Muscle or abdominal cramps.
Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.

Indian Harbor along with Tolar VFD, Granbury VFD, Station 70 VFD, North Hood County VFD Pecan VFD and Texas EMS respond to a three story structure fire. Thanks to the early warning of people out on jet skies passing by, everyone was able to get out including the family dog. Thanks to the quick actions of all involved, a lot of personal belongings were saved. Great team work by all today.
