OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A storm system moving across the central Plains left a father and son dead in Kansas, damaged roads in Oklahoma and led to several rescues of people from high waters in both states.

Montgomery County, Kansas, Sheriff Bobby Dierks said Wednesday that 72-year-old Dennis Clark Catron Sr. and 39-year-old Dennis Clark Catron Jr., both of rural Elk City, drowned Tuesday night when their vehicle was swept off a county road.

Rains also damaged the shoulder of Interstate 44 in southwestern Oklahoma City.
