The National Weather Service offices in Topeka and Wichita are alerting residents to critical fire danger to start the work week. A red flag warning is now in effect from midday Monday until early evening. Windsare expected at 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. With relative humidity as low as 16 percent, any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly and become very difficult to control. Outdoor burning is not recommended. Meteorologists have already said there could red flag warnings across much of Kansas on Tuesday as well.
Earthquakes Sunday evening in northern Oklahoma caused minor shaking across parts of our listening area. A magnitude 4.2 quake was centered almost 10 miles northeast of Enid, Oklahoma shortly after 5 pm. It was close to a mile deep and was widely felt. A second 4.2 quake hit virtually the same area around 9:40 pm. It was deeper, about two miles under the surface, and did not prompt the same burst of responses to the USGS.
