Weather service issues flash flood watch in Okla.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - A flash flood watch is in place for much of Oklahoma as more thunderstorms soak the state.

The National Weather Service issued the watch until Thursday night for a section of Oklahoma extending from Enid south to Durant and from Chickasha east to Holdenville. The watch area includes Guthrie, Stillwater, El Reno, Oklahoma City, Norman, Moore, Shawnee, Pauls Valley, Ardmore and Ada, among other cities.

Forecasters say the ground is nearly saturated after heavy rainfall over the past week. More rain is in the forecast through Thursday afternoon, and the weather service says some areas could see an additional 2 to 4 inches of rain.

Forecasters say rivers and streams will likely flood and could create sinkholes and wash out roads.
