Heavy rains, flooding moves from Oklahoma into Arkansas

The Associated Press - September 23, 2018 9:31 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The strong storm system that dumped record-breaking rain in southern Oklahoma has moved into Arkansas where flash flood watches are in effect for much of the state until Sunday.
No injuries or significant damage have been reported.
Meteorologist Forrest Mitchell with the National Weather Service in Norman said more than 16 inches of rain had fallen by noon Saturday at a station in Fittstown in south-central Oklahoma, the most recorded since the Oklahoma Climatological Survey’s Mesonet was established in the 1990s.
The system was moving into Arkansas and flash flood watches are in effect until Sunday morning.
Meteorologist Tabitha Clarke in Little Rock says up to 6 inches of rain has fallen in west-central Arkansas and another 3-5 inches could fall in southwestern Arkansas by Sunday.
