Flood threat remains as rain lingers

WARNER — As rain continues across Oklahoma, communities are cleaning up from weekend flooding and monitoring forecasts calling for more rainfall throughout the week.

Ft. Gibson emergency manager Larry Dale Cooper says the town recorded more than 3 inches of rain in one hour Monday, causing flooding on a number of roadways, —including state Highway 10. Cooper says several roads were impassable and a car was flooded on Highway 10.

Residents in Warner were also evacuated Monday as flooding blocked streets near creeks and flooded buildings, including one apartment complex.

Rain is expected to continue throughout the week, according to the National Weather Service.

The U.S. Drought Monitor reports that nearly three-fourths of the state was in a severe to extreme drought as of May 20.
