Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
STEPHENS COUNTY, OK -- Around three this Monday two tornadoes touched down in Stephens County.
Sheriff Wayne McKinney says both tornadoes hit in rural parts of the county. One about five miles east of Marlow and the other near Duncan Lake. He says there are no reports of major damage or any injuries.
McKinney says "Code Red" alerted residents to take cover.
"I think the word did get out to people, you know, and after this last week of severe weather that we've been having across the country people are really keeping a good close eye on the clouds and the weather and I'm really thankful for that," Sheriff McKinney said.
