Flooding Now Main Concern for OKC Area

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY_Aerial images show muddy water covering roadways around Oklahoma City and El  Reno.  

National Weather Service meteorologist Rick Smith said Saturday that parts of the Oklahoma City area received 8 inches of rain overnight.  Severe flooding has taken large chunks out of the road creating sink holes, but amazingly people are still attempting to drive on the roads. 

 

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's office said Saturday in a news release that several areas are flooded and that deputies helped with more than 10 high- water rescues overnight.

The Sheriff's office is also searching for a man whose vehicle was found washed off the road.
