I'm in Duncan in Stephens county and the line of storms got here right about 5:00 PM. We just got home from work about thirty minutes ago. There are
traffic lights out, the cable is going in and out, it's pouring rain (yay!), the wind is howling and there's a ton of lightening. We live towards
the top of a hil, yet my back patio is under water from the amount of rain that has fallen in such a short time.
I'm not too worried, as right now it's just a healthy thunderstorm, which we are used to. But if the cable goes out for any length of time (or the
power, for that matter), my phone will be the only source for weather updates for us.
One of my co-workers lives up north of OKC, and he was telling me that there was someone who drowned in their cellar last night in the metro area.
Apparently, they went to their cellar when the sirens went off, but it rained so much so fast that it flooded over the cellar and the water started
pouring in thru the air vents, and with the weight of the water over the cellar door, they couldn't get the door open to escape and they drowned.
Does anyone else know if this is true? Because I haven't seen anything in the news about it, but I usually tune in to KSWO out of Lawton, rather than
the OKC stations...
