Public Information Statement

Statement as of 11:06 am CDT on May 25, 2015

... Review of high water and flooding safety rules...

Widespread rainfall... some locally heavy... is expected this
afternoon through the evening hours. Residents across eastern
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas should monitor the weather
closely. Severe weather warnings along with flash flood warnings
are likely to be issued during the afternoon and evening hours
today. Given the recent rains... flash flooding will rapidly
develop with any burst of heavy rainfall.

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

Be ready for quick action if flash flooding is observed or if a
warning is issued. Have a means of receiving any warnings issued
such as a weather radio.

It only takes two feet of rushing water to carry away most sport
utility vehicles and pickups. Remember... most flood related
deaths occur in automobiles and flooding is the leading cause of
weather related deaths.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize
the dangers of flash floods. Do not stay in areas subject to
flooding when water begins to rise.

Stay away from drainage ditches... creeks and other low lying
areas. They are prone to rapid rises and may flood quickly.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio... commercial radio or television
for the latest on this developing severe weather event. Additional
weather information... including related graphics can be found at
weather.Gov/Tulsa.
