OKLAHOMA CITY - Reporter Adam Mertz and his photographer, Eric Dixon, were covering the storms when flood waters suddenly became a serious issue.
Fortunately a Good Samaritan with a truck and a large lift helped them rescue their vehicle from the high water.
Other motorists were stranded and had to leave their cars carrying what they could in the flooded streets.
The storm dumped from 6 to 8 inches of rain in many areas of the metro.
Some of the surrounding suburbs may have received up to 10 inches of rain.
