Reports coming in now that more than just folks at Midwest City's Tinker Air Force Base are being impacted by the partial government shutdown now..
Seems some 700 Oklahoma National Guard soldiers will be furloughed while Congress decides what to do about that temporary spending plan. That word from Gov. Mary Fallin's office late yesterday.
On top of that, officials at the Storm Prediction Center in Norman say the center is still operational, but its facebook page will not be updated as often as they'd like.
This word coming at a time when forecasters are predicting a slight chance for severe weather coming into the metro Oklahoma City area Friday and into Friday night as a cold front moves through.
