  • Downpour closes East Main

    A heavy Friday morning downpour left one block of East Main Street covered in nearly two feet of water. The 30-minute rainfall overwhelmed storm drains across town and made driving miserable until the water receded. This motorist braved the floodwaters and was able to get into McDonalds. "People don't realize how quickly they can get in trouble with these flooded areas," said fire chief David Bullard. "They need to stay away from water moving across the roadway."

Mary Fallin has instructed the state Transportation Department “to expedite bidding on county infrastructure projects and to explore additional means of supporting recovery efforts.”
