Drainage system struggles with downpour

LAWTON, Okla._Much the area was under several inches of water after drainage systems struggled to keep up with the downpour.

Viewers sent in photos of the storm and flooded areas. Water rushed down several streets, flooding roads and even yards. Several residents in a northwest Lawton neighborhood said water rose over the curb and onto their lawns; in some cases just inches away from the edge of their homes.

And while flooded streets proved challenging for some, others took advantage of it.
