Special Statement  Statement as of 6:02 am EDT on April 23, 2014

... Increased fire danger today...

Breezy and dry conditions will prevail over northeast North Carolina
today. Minimum relative humidity values will range from 20 to 30
percent and will combine with sustained northwest winds of 15 to
20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. This will result in increased
fire danger across northeast North Carolina through early this
evening, primarily during the afternoon hours.

Residents are urged to exercise caution handling any potential
ignition source... including machinery... cigarettes and matches. Be
sure to properly discard all smoking materials. Any dry grasses
and tree litter that ignite will have the potential to spread
