Eastern Oklahoma,01- 0000CST-           0    0   3        River Flooding
  OKZ056>058-075 05  1200CST

                 Heavy rainfall which occurred during late April caused the Verdigris,
                 Neosho, and Poteau Rivers to rise above flood stage before the end of
                 April. These rivers were still in flood as May began.

                 The Verdigris River at Lenapah began the month above the flood stage of
                 30 feet. The river remained above flood stage until May 3rd, reaching
                 a crest of 33.33 feet on May 2nd. This resulted in only minor flooding.

                 The Neosho River at Commerce was also above the flood stage of 15 feet
                 as May began, and it dropped below flood stage on May 5th. The river
                 crested at 20.75 feet on May 2nd. Widespread serious flooding developed
                 along the Neosho River in Craig and Ottawa Counties. Low-lying areas of
                 the town of Miami experienced flooding as did some suburban areas.

                 The Poteau River at Panama was above the flood stage of 29 feet as May
                 began. It crested at 31.34 feet on May 1st and fell below flood stage
                 during the evening of May 1st. This resulted in moderate flooding of
                 crops and pasturelands along the river near Panama and several miles
                 downstream from Panama. No flooding occurred in the town of Panama.

                 Parts of southeast Oklahoma received an additional 2 to 3 inches of
                 rain on May 2nd, and this rainfall once again caused the Poteau River
                 at Panama to rise above flood stage. The river rose above flood stage
                 on May 3rd, and crested at 32.25 feet on May 4th. The river fell below
                 flood stage the night of May 4th. Moderate flooding along the river
                 affected mainly pasturelands.

                 Severe thunderstorms developed in northeast Oklahoma during the evening
                 of May 25th. Strong thunderstorm winds caused damage on the east side
                 of Tulsa and in northern Broken Arrow. The winds downed signs and
                 overturned empty U-Haul trailers near 51st Street South and U.S.
                 Highway 169. High voltage lines and power poles were downed near State
