OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Heavy rains flooded homes, roads and
businesses in parts of northeastern Oklahoma today forcing authorities to rescue stranded residents and motorists.
No injuries are reported.
Nearly 7 inches of rain has fallen in Cherokee, Delaware, Rogers and Mayes counties since early this morning and much of downtown Pryor was closed because of flooded streets.
Mayes County Sheriff Frank Cantey says the flooding extended to some homes and businesses.
Cantey says some homes in low-lying areas have 3 feet of water in them.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Jack McCoy said there were too many roads closed to list them all and the OHP was asking people not to travel in the area.
