30-Day State of Emergency Declared across Oklahoma

Governor Fallin has declared a state of emergency for all 77 counties in Oklahoma after storms battered the state, causing widespread flooding and leaving roads coated with up to 3cm of ice.

About 25 cm of rain fell across large swathes of SE Oklahoma over a 100-hour period causing extensive flash flooding and forcing the authorities to close two state highways.

“Nearly 100,000 homes were still without power Sunday afternoon as a result of freezing rain, ice and sleet that began Thursday. The state of emergency will help facilitate additional mutual aid, which includes oversized vehicles such as those transporting utility poles to the affected areas,” according to statement posted on Fallin’s website.
