Storms bring rain and some flooding, but the worst stays south of Sapulpa

A series of storms sweeping through Oklahoma this week have left much of the state soaked or in shambles, according to multiple news outlets.

The National Weather Service in Tulsa has warned of possible flooding in southeast Creek County: “Between 3 and 8 inches of rain have fallen across much of the warned area with localized amounts near 10 inches. Additional rainfall amounts around one-half inch are expected in the warned area early Thursday morning.”

Seminole has faced more than its share in the last three days, and the video of the damage facing the community is harrowing. So far, there have not been any reports of deaths or injuries.

Okmulgee faced severe flooding, and emergency crews there reported multiple water rescues overnight, but the water has begun to recede.

Weather reports are calling for continued isolated thunderstorms in the area until about 5:00 pm, at which point the skies should clear, leading to partly-cloudy and mostly sunny skies on Friday.
