Heavy rain causes flash flooding in Lawton

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Heavy rains soaked the Lawton area late Thursday and early Friday morning causing flash flooding and problems for drivers.

High winds, whipped the rain around and turned roads into ponds near Apache Casino on East Gore Boulevard. Drivers tell us they could hardly see as the rain drenched roads in many neighborhoods. Crews had to block traffic in both ways on Sheridan Road at D Avenue due to Numu Creek overflowing onto the roadway. There was also high water on F Avenue around 11th Street.

We also had reports of a vehicle stranded in standing water that was at least three-feet deep at Southwest 20th Street and Washington Avenue.
