More heavy rains could mean more flooding problems for motorists around the metro.

Oklahoma City Fire officials say there are at least five problem areas for roadway flooding. They include N.W. 23rd Street and Broadway, 50th Street and the Broadway Extension, Reno and Ann Arbor and N.W. 122nd and MacArthur.

"If the water is up even curb level on the sides of the streets, you shouldn't even drive through that deep of water," said Battalion Chief Brian Stanaland. "Floodwaters can sweep a car away in a matter of seconds."

May Avenue just south of S.W. 21st Street has also flooded twice in the past four days. We found at least part of the problem. Both storm drains on each side of May Avenue were stuffed with all kinds of debris when we checked Tuesday afternoon.
