Riley County Emergency Management Director Pat Collins said the wind is expected to “die down” this afternoon. Collins said it would be fine to begin controlled burns of pasture lands. That will be the case for the next two days.
Collins also said that a permit has been issued to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to burn trees. Collins did not specify a date for the burning, but said that it will take place at the intersection of Marlatt Ave. and Tuttle Creek Blvd.
