OKLAHOMA CITY_A spokeswoman for the city of Oklahoma City says there is widespread flooding across the city after a violent storm that produced a tornado.

Kristy Yager said city street Superintendent Randy Moulder was waiting for the rain to end before sending crews out to deal with the flooding. Yager says about an inch of water was also standing on the first floor of City Hall Friday night.

Television images show water up to the headlights of cars in flooded city streets.
