Just In: Storms Flood Oklahoma City

Extreme weather spreads to Oklahoma. Global warming, anyone?


On the heels of 19 people killed by flooding in Arkansas, merciless flash floods and power outages have lead to the evacuation of some neighborhoods in Oklahoma City. Oklahoma Gas and Electricity says that 4000 customers are without power due to the floods.

Approximately 10 inches of rain fell between 2 and 11 a.m. CT. The National Weather Service estimates that 1 to 2 more inches will fall across the region through tomorrow night. Still think that talks environmental issues are fabricated?
