Recent rains have forced rivers in Southern Oklahoma to flood their banks, now locals are becoming concerned.

The Washita River in Murray, Johnston and Carter counties is higher than it has been in months.

By 10 pm Thursday, heavy rains in the central part of the state had sent water over the banks in some areas.

But levels dropped three and a half feet overnight, and fell another foot on Friday.

The Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuge has been forced to close off some roads due to flooding... a complete 180 from last year when the same area was in a drought.
