Flooding has led to erosion along the Canadian River in northeast Choctaw near the Canadian River, and threatened structures sitting precariously on the river's edge.

A family living at 3800 N. Triple X Road is voluntarily evacuating from their property after the erosion swallowed one outbuilding. The edge of the river is now creeping closer to the family's house.

The family decided to leave their home because of the danger. Because of flooding, the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office has closed several roads in Choctaw. They are:

  • 2200 block of N. Henney Road
  • 15600 SE 15th Street
  • 2400 block McDonald Road
  • 2600 S. Triple X Road
