Osage County in northeast Oklahoma...

* at 1208 am CDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
areas of light rain across the warned area. Although additional
rainfall amounts will remain light in the short term... 5 to 6
inches have already fallen and flooding of low lying areas will
likely continue. Numerous secondary roads remain closed due to
flooding and high water.

* Runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause flooding to occur.
Some locations that could experience flooding include...

Okemah... Okmulgee... Pawhuska... Pawnee... Sand Springs... Tulsa...
Avant... Barnsdall... Bartlesville Municipal Airport... Bearden...

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.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flash flooding is observed act quickly. Do
not enter the water. Turn around and move up to higher ground to
escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to flooding when
water begins rising.
