After several flash flood warnings during the night, the National Weather Service just issued a new flash flood warning for the area lasting until 10:30 a.m.

Many roads across the area are flooded, and the weather service warns everyone to not drive into standing water under any circumstances.

Muskogee County Commissioner Ken Doke made this statement earlier:

We have had an unreal amount of rainfall. Radar shows that we still have hours of heavy rainfall left before it’s over. At this time, there is no access in or out of Gooseneck Bend. All routes are currently flooded; including Country Club, York Street, Smith Ferry, 53rd, Sallie Brown, etc. In fact, the number of roads across the county that are flooded and impassable are too many to count. Earlier today, the river levels were of little concern. Now, it has our attention. I’m getting messages from friends in Muskogee saying that their homes are flooding (from flash flooding). I’m sure that’s the case for many people across the county right now. Power is out in some areas in FTG. In lieu of the circumstances, the Emergency Operation Center (EOC) has been activated.
