Anyone have update on fires in Cen TX?

The news coverage here is a joke, no one is reporting live on the enormous forest fire in Bastrop county.  I can't find any good twitter feeds either. Anyone have any updates regarding where the fire has spread to?  I would just lose my BOL but have other coworkers with houses and families out there.

I was working at the BOL this morning and afternoon, I left before things got serious but the problem is that I had no idea there was a forest fire coming, I have no means of communication out there.  I lucked out this time, will need to be proactive before the next time. 

Moderator, please move this post if it belongs elsewhere.

Thanks for trying but those sites are pretty vague as well.  The statesman's last update was at 8:30 last night.  I checked this morning and the news around here has no new news.  In morning meeting now, 2 of 4 of us were here, the others had to evacuate.

This report is less than an hour old at this time: http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/09/04/texas.fires/

this is another report from this morning: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/09/05/woman-child-killed-when-texas-fire-engulfs-home/

There will not be and never is minute by minute coverage of a wildfire for the general populous.

Something like this may be useful for those too close to the fire: http://www.radioreference.com/apps/audio/?ctid=2533
