Turn around, don’t drown: Metro sees inch per hour of rain

WARR ACRES, Okla. - Rapid rainfall rates of an inch an hour fell across the west metro this morning.

That caused street flooding at Hammond Ave., a notorious area of poor drainage in Warr Acres.

One driver stalled their vehicle out in the high water that was up to the windows at one point.

A reminder to "turn around, don't drown" as flood waters can and will disable your vehicle.

The Warr Acres Fire Department sent a crew out to check on the driver, a situation that causes emergency responders to route resources to calls that are avoidable.
