KGWA Local News Monday

WW)—Because of icy weather conditions Enid Public Schools will be closed again Tuesday.   The cancellation of schools today and Tuesday was prompted by the light drizzle that left many roadways slick and hazardous. Freezing drizzle and freezing fog will remain possible through early evening both locally and across much of the state. The freezing drizzle is resulting in black ice, which is hard to see on highways, city streets and in parking lots so drivers need to slow down and use extra caution.

FC)—A Dover woman was killed early today when her vehicle slid off an icy Kingfisher County highway. Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials said 42 year-old Brandi Lyn Byrum was pronounced dead at the scene on US 81 about a half mile south of Dover. According to the report, Byrum was southbound on 81 just before 5:10 this morning when she lost control of the 2016 Chevy Equinox she was driving. The vehicle departed to roadway and rolled a half time coming to rest on its roof. The road condition was listed as icy. Byrum’s condition was said to be “Apparently Normal” and the cause of the crash as “Excessive speed for the road conditions.”

VC)--The COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Oakwood Mall has pushed back its start times to 10:00 a.m. every day this week due to icy weather conditions and slick roadways in the Enid area.

EQ)--In response to a swarm of at least 18 earthquakes, including one measuring magnitude 4.2, in the Covington area in southeast Garfield County last week, the Oklahoma Corporation Commission has ordered disposal wells in the area to cease or reduce operations. Disposal wells within three miles of the largest earthquake’s epicenter have been ordered to cease operations, while wells from 3 to 10 miles of the epicenter must reduce volume to no more than 50% of the current 30-day average. Several of the larger quakes were felt here in Enid, with the largest quake, the 4.2, felt here and by people in both Oklahoma City and Tulsa. The number of earthquakes in Oklahoma has been declining in recent years in conjunction with stricter regulation of disposal wells. In 2020, there were only 36 earthquakes with a magnitude greater than 3.0 throughout the state, with 16 of those in Northwest Oklahoma.

VP)--The Oklahoma State Department of Health COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal is available for pre-registration. The department launched the COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal to notify Oklahomans when they’re eligible to receive the vaccine and provide more information on how to schedule an appointment. Oklahomans can visit this portal at vaccinate.oklahoma.gov, but appointment scheduling will not be available until Thursday. Health officials said currently only Oklahomans who are 65 and older, health care workers and/or first responders will be able to schedule appointments. As the state advances in its phased approach to vaccine distribution, the system will notify and allow individuals in additional priority groups and phases the opportunity to schedule their appointment.
