A megafire complex is burning over the open Plains in the NE Texas Panhandle currently, with 200,000 acres burnt as of this writing.

Strong winds, hot temperatures, and dry conditions are fueling the rapid spread of fires, many of which started yesterday. As a cold front pushes through, fires will shift their movement to the south. This is an incredibly dangerous event for folks in this region, be sure to listen to local warnings and be prepared to evacuate quickly.
