  Rainfall amounts of 2 to 5 inches occurred across eastern Oklahoma from

  on already saturated ground and resulted in widespread flash flooding.
  Many creeks overflowed their banks, and numerous roads were closed
  across eastern Oklahoma due to high water. A car was swept away near
  Okay in Wagoner County at 2030 CST on December 13th, and the driver of
  the car had to be rescued by a firefighter who swam out to the car.
  Widespread mainstem river flooding also occurred throughout eastern
  Oklahoma during this time period. On the evening of the 14th, a woman
  and her son were rescued from a raging creek in Ottawa County. On the
  morning of the 15th, a woman and a truck driver were pulled from flood
  waters near Webber Falls. In both of these incidences, an attempt was
  made to drive across a flooded roadway.
