...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 745 AM CDT FOR
At 400 AM CDT, local law enforcement reported that water levels
remained high in many areas with several road closures. While most
of the rainfall has ended or expected to end by dawn, water levels
and runoff from the earlier heavy rainfall will continue to result
in some flooded roadways, creeks, streams and rivers.
Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Coffeyville, Independence, Cherryvale, Caney, Dearing, Elk City,
Tyro, Liberty, Havana, Bolton, Sycamore, Elk City Lake, Elk City
State Park, Independence Airport and Coffeyville Airport.
Move to higher ground now. This is an extremely dangerous and
life-threatening situation. Do not attempt to travel unless you are
fleeing an area subject to flooding or under an evacuation order.
Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.
Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.
