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.
WAPANUCKA, OK-The Wapanucka city council announced a plan Tuesday night that they hope will help solve their ongoing water problems.
City officials signed an agreement with the Chickasaw and Choctaw nations Tuesday to drill three test wells to find out if the city has ample groundwater. Mayor Sue Standifer said both nations agreed to pay for the entire cost of the project, which is $18,000. She said the test drilling will help the city decide if they'll drill new wells or buy water from Atoka.
We attended the council meeting, but none of the city council members would answer our questions on camera. We'll continue to follow this story.
