Wildfires are being swept by 45 mph winds rushing to the north across Okmulgee county south of Tulsa. My Daughter is under Forced evacuation from her home in Liberty. They have loaded the horses, dogs, cats and grand kids and are heading out as I post. 10 fire trucks are lined up on the road in front of their house. They hope to keep the 30' wall of fire from pushing across the road. The fire has crossed many roads during the past 2 days. This is an area of drought baked scrub oak woods.

Wow Lile, I hate to hear that.
Your daughter and her family will be in my prayers. I hope everything turns out ok, and ya'll get some rain.

We were able to get back into the property later in the afternoon after a wind shift. I spent the most of the night at their house helping with hoses watering the perimeter. The fires were past at 3 am. Today the humidity is higher with a front coming in from the north. We should be in the clear as long as the winds do not reverse this afternoon. The winds are still pretty hard. I got home about 3:30 AM this morning. Showered, took a nap and about to head back to the office now. 6 houses were lost that I know of. Weatherman is predicting some rain later overnight into morning. Everything in the house smells like smoke. The fire covered close to 8 square miles so far.

That's good news Lile.
Hopefully you'll get the same front we are supposed to get later tonight. No storms, but 1-2 inches of rain.
I think we're getting your winds from yesterday. 15mph gusting to 35mph and out of the south, clear skies, and low humidity.
