WSHF Listening Area Under Burn Ban
Governor Robert Bentley has declared a Drought Emergency for 46 counties in Alabama, including our listening area. Exceptionally dry conditions have increased the risk of wildfires in the state, causing the governor to outlaw burning grass, brush, trash, and other material outdoors where it might spark a wildfire. Volunteer fire departments in the Shoals have responded to numerous brush fires this week, and the departments are urging the public to use caution with potential ignition sources such as cigarettes and machinery.
Stay tuned to WSHF News and the Tennessee Valley Farm Report for the latest information on the drought and its effects.
