Anyone in the metro Wednesday morning heading east on the Turner Turnpike will see all lanes back open. Flooding forced parts of it to close for two hours. It re-opened at 1 a.m.

Flood waters are to blame for the drowning death of one person who was pinned inside a car in Lincoln County just south of Stroud.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol tells us a car with three people inside was swept off the road and into a drainage culvert. Two other people in the car are in the hospital and expected to be released.

The town of Stroud also dealt with flash flooding. Highway 66 at one point was covered by seven to eight feet of water over the road at one point.
