Heavy rains cause roof collapse in Pawnee

The Associated Press - May 1, 2017 9:19 am

PAWNEE, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say no one was hurt after heavy rains caused a building’s roof to collapse in northern Oklahoma.

Authorities in Pawnee say the roof of a furniture store caved in early Monday morning. Parts of Oklahoma remain under flood and flash flood warnings because of excessive rainfall over the weekend.

In Tahlequah, the Illinois River crested Sunday night at about 29 feet – well above the major flood stage of 18 feet.

Meanwhile, temperatures are expected to warm Monday in the Oklahoma Panhandle, where snow fell over the weekend. State highway officials say roads in Texas and Cimarron counties are slick but high temperatures are expected in the 50s on Monday.
