Flash Flood Warning, Areal Flood Warning
Statement as of 12:28 PM CDT on May 28, 2015

... Flash Flood Warning remains in effect for Latimer... Sequoyah...
Pushmataha... extreme eastern Pittsburg... southeastern Muskogee...
northeastern McIntosh... Le Flore... Haskell and Choctaw counties until
400 PM CDT...

At 1223 PM CDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
areas of light to moderate rain across the warned area. Although
additional rainfall amounts will remain mostly light... 1 to 3 inches
of rain has already fallen and flooding of low lying areas will
likely continue.

The heaviest rain... of 2 to 3 inches... has fallen over northwest
Pushmataha County and also scattered areas in Latimer County. Near
one inch of rainfall has fallen over far western portions of Le
Flore County.

As wet as the ground is... even one inch of rainfall could cause
flooding of low lying areas and low water crossings.

Runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause flash flooding to
occur. Some locations that will experience flash flooding include...
Antlers... Clayton... Hugo... Poteau... Sallisaw... Stigler... Wilburton...
Albion... Bengal... Big Cedar... Bokoshe... Briartown... brushy... Brushy
Lake State Park... Cameron... Clayton Lake State Park... cloudy...
Damon... Dunbar... Enterprise... Fanshawe... Fort Towson... Gans...
Goodland... Gore... Greenleaf State Park... Heavener... Heavener
runestone State Park... Higgins and Howe.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the Road to
unknown depths. It only takes two feet of rushing water to carry away
most sport utility vehicles and pickups. Take a different Route to
reach your destination or wait until the water recedes. Remember...
most flood related deaths occur in automobiles.

Low water crossings in hilly terrain are especially dangerous in
heavy rain. Do not attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find
alternate routes. It only takes a few inches of swiftly flowing water
to carry vehicles away.

To report flooding... have the nearest law enforcement agency relay
your report to the National Weather Service forecast office in Tulsa.

capacity. High releases are required and this may flood the
downstream river. Also... tributaries that feed into these reservoirs
will also back up and flood until lake levels get under control.
Roads near these lakes may be under water due to flooding from these
lakes... especially Eufaula... Wister... Sardis and Hugo.

The heavy rainfall from the past week has caused area lakes...
small creeks and streams... low water crossings and low lying
areas as well as the major rivers to flood. This flooding will
likely continue for much into the weekend. Area lakes are near or
slightly over full capacity. High releases are required and this
may flood the downstream river. Also... tributaries that feed into
these reservoirs will also back up and flood until lake levels
get under control. Roads near these lakes may be under water due
to flooding from these lakes... especially Eufaula... Wister...
Sardis and Hugo.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is
possible within the watch area.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the
Road... the Road may be washed out underneath the rushing water.
Take a different Route to reach your destination or wait until
the water recedes.

If you are in the watch area... keep informed... and be ready for
quick action if flash flooding is observed or if a warning is
issued. Have a means of receiving any warnings issued overnight
such as a weather radio.
