Posted on 12/05/2013 1:30:04 PM PST by Star Traveler
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin today declared a State of Emergency for all 77 Oklahoma counties due to the winter storm impacting the state.
"The weather is bad and getting worse," said Fallin in a news release. "Emergency personnel are coordinating with state and local officials to ensure we are prepared and ready for whatever comes our way."
The declaration allows state agencies to make emergency purchases related to disaster relief and preparedness. It is also a first step toward seeking federal assistance should it be necessary.
Under the Executive Order, the state of emergency lasts for 30 days. Tulsa forecast calls for snow, sleet, single-digit lows.
Tulsa's winter weather is mostly expected tonight, with high chances of sleet and snow during the day today, then flurries and freezing drizzle possible Friday.

global warming is a hoax
there is no warming only cooling
the government has lied to us for 30 years screaming global warming for 30 years
the scientists have lied to us for 30 years, screaming global warming for 30 years
the news media have lied to us for 30 years, screaming global warming for 30 years
you freaking democrat voters do you see your media , your gov , your scientists have been lying to you for 30 years, you socialist morons
What? Did Fallin just move there from Florida or something? It’s never snowed in Ok. before?
However, the streets are icing up and with me driving to school to pick someone up, I was hoping no one would slide into me. I don’t have much trouble driving in this stuff, but you never know if someone else is going to smash into you, and it could be any of the four sides of the car. You really gotta be looking around you.
It’s this cold in Oklahoma
it’s bitterly cold most places
global warming? lol lol lol
democrat voters still believe their media masters over their freezing behinds. idiots
I blame all this on Snowden...
Nobody on MSM uses the term “global warming” any more.
It’s climate change.
Now any exciting weather event can be attributed to it.
Just north of you here at Lake of the Ozarks.
Roads are dry. No sleet or snow...yet.
Since I’ve been here, I’ve noticed that they do that in Oklahoma — declare a State of Emergency for just about everything. I just think it’s gotten to be a “standard procedure” now.
As the article states — it opens the door for Federal money — which is why I think they do it all the time.
Junk science. I wouldn't care except thanks to promotion by the Obama administration and the UN, this hoax is going to cost us dearly.
the U.S government funded 30 years of fake global warming research. your tax dollars at work.
this proves socialism/government can never work
they can call it climate change but I’ll keep reminding them they called it global warming for 30 years
Ummm ... on the other hand ... it’s the WINTER season — so I wouldn’t be using “winter” as a methodology to discount Global Warming proponents. It actually sounds kind of hokey and “contrived” to use winter weather as a reason against Global Warming. There are much much better arguments than “winter is here” ... LOL ...
they are still saying the Ice caps are melting which would cause the seas to rise. that means warming to melt the ice caps . that’s a lie from the news media . it’s not warming it’s cooling. it’s freezing everywhere and it’s not even winter yet.
the Sun says little Ice age coming. they can call it climate change all they want. we remember it’s global warming
“Its climate change.
Now any exciting weather event can be attributed to it.”
Right. And this guarantees a minimum of four ‘events’ per year they can propagandize.
funny it’s not WINTER.it’s still FAll so shouldn’t we have had some warming by now after 30 years of your global warming?
FYI Winter starts december 21.
it was in the 30’s here in New Orleans a month ago
try again and look up solar Cycle 25. the Sun says the Earth is cooling and will cool
You’re north of Springfield, Missouri, then?
In southern California it’s about 62 degrees, bright sunny, occasional cotton-ball clouds, mild sleepy breeze and visibility is nearly limitless...The view of the mountains is just fantastic...
That’s why NBC purchased the Weather Channel.
It’s a propaganda outlet disguised as an info channel.
They even have MSNBC news snippets weaved in.
I knew someone was going to bring that up ... LOL ... which is why I tried to “spread it out” using the phrase “winter season”. I call anything from the first freeze to the last freeze, the winter season, no matter if it’s in the Fall or Spring ... :-) ...
We’ve gotten about 2 inches of snow. I think it’s a little premature to declare a “state of emergency”.
