Red Flag Warning Issued by National Weather Service

by scrosby on April 27, 2009

Blustery winds this afternoon will significantly increase the fire danger risk in much of Kentucky and southern Indiana.  The National Weather Service in Louisville has issued a Red Flag Warning in those areas until six o’clock.

Forecaster Tom Reaugh says a combination of warm weather, dry vegetation and high winds prompted the warning.

“It’s just important to keep a close eye on any fire you might have going on outside, especially if that wind picks up this afternoon,” says Reaugh.  “A fire can get out of control very quickly and very easily, so we just want people to be careful.”

Storms are expected in the area tonight as a new weather system moves into the area.
