Flash Flood Danger: Southern Great Plains

80% of Flash Flood Deaths Occur in High Risk Areas
This Includes DFW Metroplex, Wichita Falls and Ardmore
A flash flood emergency is already in effect for parts of Atoka, Coal, Johnson and Pontotoc Counties in Oklahoma. Up to eight inches has already fallen and severe flooding is already in progress.

Here is a rough forecast of additional rainfall.
Please use extreme caution and remember, "Turn around, don't drown!"

Addition information 1:20pm CDT: All of Interstate 35 from Oklahoma City to the Texas state line is under a flash flood warning. 

I would urge people not to travel unless absolutely necessary in southern Oklahoma as more than ten inches of rain have already fallen. It is possible that more than six additional inches of rain will fall.
