Heavy Weather Pounds Central Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The National Weather Service warns that flash flooding is likely in the Oklahoma City area Wednesday morning, while severe thunderstorms are possible in much of southern and central Oklahoma.

Wednesday's forecast comes after storms dropped enormous hail on the Oklahoma City area Tuesday night. The National Weather Service received preliminary reports of softball-sized hail or larger in the Kingfisher area.

No deaths were reported but authorities say a handful of people were injured by the large hailstones.

The weather service warned that heavy rainfall will flood some streets in Oklahoma City on Wednesday morning. The flood advisory includes the North Canadian River, West Elm Creek, North Fork Little River, Crooked Oak Creek, Lightning Creek and Twin Creek.
