Oklahoma counts dead, wounded from new tornadoes, flash floods

US: Less than two weeks after deadly tornadoes ravaged Moore and south Oklahoma City, Oklahomans are once again counting their dead and wounded. Fourteen people were killed in Friday night’s tornadoes and ensuing flash floods and another 104 were injured.

Tens of thousands of people found themselves sitting in the dark. Downtown Oklahoma City was a mess of flooded basements. Residents of the Crutcho area of south Oklahoma City woke up to stormwaters climbing up the sides of their homes. Water rescue teams evacuated about 100 residences.

Deaths came in the tornado and its watery aftermath. The state medical examiner confirmed nine fatalities from the tornadoes, two children and seven adults. Two other storm-related fatalities were reported by law enforcement.

James C. Talbert died after he drove his vehicle off a washed out bridge at E Hefner and N Dobbs Road in eastern Oklahoma County early Saturday morning, the Oklahoma County sheriff’s office reported.

And the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported that Dorenia Akins, 69, of Clearview drowned Saturday morning after driving into the high rushing waters of flooded Alabama Creek, south of Clearview on an Okfuskee County road.

In Oklahoma City, flooding continued to be a problem Saturday afternoon. Numerous roads remained closed, and a road collapsed near SW 29 and Sara Road, a city spokeswoman said.

Spokeswoman Karen Carney said a commercial aircraft got blown into a jet bridge. There were numerous flight cancellations as aircraft couldn’t get in after the storm.

Oklahoma City University reported water damage on campus, but no structural damage to the university’s buildings. An earlier report of a partial roof collapse was incorrect.
