THINGS TO DO

Muskogee residents who leave near the Arkansas River are being asked to make plans for immediate evacuation, according to County Commissioner Ken Doke.

“The river is expected to crest 10 feet above flood stage on Thursday morning,” he said. “That’s very close to the levels that happened in the record flood in 1986.”

Muskogee County has issued a state of emergency. The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for the area.
