                 Severe thunderstorms developed in east central and parts of northeast
                 Oklahoma ahead of a strong cold front during the late afternoon and
                 evening of September 13th and lingered into the very early morning of
                 september 14th. Damaging winds accompanied many of the storms, and 1
                 tornado also occurred. The tornado touched down at 1645 CST on the
                 south side of Bearden and moved east for 1 mile before lifting at 1648
                 CST. the tornado passed 1 mile south of the Bearden School and between
                 two widely spaced homes, and no structural damage occurred as a result
                 of the tornado. Some tree damage did occur along the 50 yard wide path
                 of the tornado, and the tornado was rated as an F-0 in intensity.
                 Strong thunderstorm winds destroyed a barn and damaged several
                 buildings in southeast Delaware County 2 miles west of Cherokee City,
                 Arkansas. A boat was overturned by strong winds 1/4 mile southeast of
                 the Wal-Mart store in the town of Okmulgee, and trees were also damaged
                 in the same area. Numerous trees were downed from 5 miles northwest of
                 Chewey to Chewey, and one tree was uprooted and numerous large tree
                 limbs were downed on the west side of the town of Muskogee. Power lines
                 were also downed by the strong winds just northeast of Muskogee. Large
                 branches and tree limbs were downed on several rural roads between
                 Peggs and Tahlequah, and numerous large tree limbs were downed at
                 Sequoyah State Park and Golf Course 6 miles east of Wagoner. Strong
                 thunderstorm winds also downed numerous large tree limbs at Hitchita
                 and at Bunch. The storms also produced dime size hail near the town of
                 Kansas in southern Delaware County.
                 The thunderstorms also produced heavy rainfall which resulted in flash
                 flooding. Many county roads were flooded in northern Cherokee County,
                 aand several rural roads were covered by water west of Eufaula. An
                 underpass on State Highway 16 in the town of Beggs was underwater, and
                 71st Street was flooded 3 miles east of Broken Arrow in western Wagoner
                 County. Many streets were flooded in Okemah and Bixby, and several
                 streets were flooded in Muskogee. Street flooding also occurred in
                 Okmulgee, Henryetta, and Stilwell.

                 Severe thunderstorms developed in northeast Oklahoma during the
                 afternoon and evening of September 19th. Large hail accompanied many of
                 the storms, and 1 tornado also occurred. The tornado touched down
                 briefly at 1800 CST 4 miles east of Beggs near the intersection of U.S.
                 Highway 75 and State Highway 16. A roof was blown off a mobile home as
                 a result of this F-0 tornado, and other minor damage also occurred. The
                 storms produced golfball size hail 5.5 miles west of Bartlesville, and
                 dime to quarter size hail fell at many locations in northeast Oklahoma,
                 including the city of Tulsa. Thunderstorm winds gusted to 60 miles an
                 hour at Copan.

                 Heavy rains in northeast Oklahoma during the evening of September 24th
                 and early morning of September 25th resulted in flash flooding.
                 Rainfall amounts of up to 8 1/2 inches fell in extreme northeast
                 Oklahoma, sending many creeks in Nowata, Craig, and Ottawa Counties out
                 of their banks. Approximately 150 people were evacuated in these
                 counties during the early morning of September 25th. The majority of
                 the people evacuated were in the floodplain of Tar Creek in the
                 northeast part of the town of Miami in Ottawa County. Tar Creek flooded
                 some homes to a depth of 4 to 5 feet. Several roads were also covered
                 by water in northeast Oklahoma, including U.S. Highway 60 10 miles east
                 of Bartlesville and 5 miles west of Nowata, State Highway 28 4 miles
                 northwest of Chelsea, State Highway 10 4 miles east of Welch, and State
                 Highway 125 3 miles south of Miami. Major street flooding occurred from
                 1.5 miles west of Bartlesville to 1.5 miles east of Bartlesville, and
                 street flooding also occurred in Vinita and Miami.

                 Rainfall was even heavier upstream in southeast Kansas, and this
                 resulted in major river flooding in Ottawa County along the Spring and
                 Neosho Rivers. The Spring River near Quapaw was above flood stage from
                 around 1800 CST September 24th to around 0600 CST September 29th. The
                 Spring River at Quapaw crested at a record level of 46.40 feet around
                 1100 CST on September 26th. This was 26.4 feet above the flood stage of
                 20 feet. The previous highest crest was 43.40 feet recorded on May 19,
                 1943. The Neosho River near Commerce was above flood stage from around
                 1800 CST September 24th to around 0600 CST October 1st. The Neosho
                 River at Commerce crested at 24.09 feet around 1500 CST on September
                 27th. This was 9.09 feet above the flood stage of 15 feet, and it was
                 the 5th highest crest recorded at Commerce. Local officials reported
                 that up to 500 structures were evacuated in Ottawa County, including up
                 to 300 in the town of Miami. The floodwaters closed all main highways
                 in the county except for Interstate 44. Assessment teams from the
                 Federal Emergency Management Agency are tabulating the flood damage,
                 but due to the extent of the flooding, no estimates are available as of
                 the end of October. There were no reports of deaths or injuries as a
                 result of either the flash flooding or the river flooding in northeast
                 Oklahoma.
