Severe storms and flash floods have hit parts of the Plains this week, forcing hundreds of thousands of Oklahoma residents to evacuate from their homes and businesses.
The Texas Department of Transportation closed parts of Interstate 45 in the north and south of the county because of flooding. Interstate 40 eastbound was narrowed to one lane after a crash on the Gore-Arkansas border. A heavy band of freezing rain was working its way east on the busy H.E. Bailey Turnpike. Emergency management also reported that a tree blocked westbound lanes of I-40 near the Arkansas-Texas border near Gore, Arkansas.
Water rescues were taking place in Lawton, Oklahoma, where several vehicles were stuck Sunday, the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management said. The US Army Corps of Engineers and other law enforcement agencies tried to rescue more than 1,000 people, many of them children, from the Comanche River floods in the area. Lawon is a Comanches County Web site named after Gen. Henry W. Lawton, who was a member of Congress and first chief of staff to President George H.W. Bush.
In the afternoon of April 10, 1979, a tornado hit Lawton, locally known as "Terrible Tuesday." The same tornado outbreak had previously killed more than 1,000 people and destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses in Vernon, Texas. This storm, which was further north and west, posed serious economic challenges to the Lawonians.
State Highway 7 between Lawton and Duncan was closed Sunday due to flooding in Beaver Creek. Oklahoma's Department of Transportation reported serious travel hazards and said driving conditions can be dangerous. KSWO also reported that Comanche County Emergency Management officials evacuated more than 1,000 people from their homes and businesses on Sunday.
An Alamogordo police officer was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, and since Thursday, the Norman campus of OU has been in the final stages of a phase that began Monday, August 1. Oklahoma health officials reported 22 other confirmed deaths in Oklahoma linked to the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. Oklahoma State's Department of Health said Saturday that 687 new COVID-19 cases had been confirmed in the last 24 hours. Of those, 429 have died and 45,751 residents have recovered from their illnesses, according to the Oklahoma Department of Health.
He and the fire marshal's office were surprised by how the fire had caused so much damage inside the car, said Sonny Samsone of Oklahoma State Police.
It will take a lot of time and expertise to clean a house properly and restore it to its condition before it is lost. The elimination of fire damage requires several steps to repair the damage to the home and the physical and mental health of the homeowner. Not only does every fire vary in its cause, but the damage it causes can also vary. For example, some can be removed to speed up the spread of a fire and do more damage, while others do less damage.
