Water clearing off roadways in Lawton, but many remain flooded.

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: With the rain subsiding in Lawton, Comanche County Emergency Management says travel is still not encouraged, but if you have to drive, be prepared to encounter flooded roads and "turn around, don't drown."

Lawton Firefighters and Police Officers began responding to dozens of car rescues beginning at 3:30 a.m. Friday after drivers became stranded in flooded roadways. We're also hearing reports of home, apartment and business flooding in the area. Residents in Geronimo are also reporting structure damage due to strong winds overnight.
