Powerful thunderstorms produce heavy rain, hail in metro

OKLAHOMA CITY – It was a rude awakening for many across the Oklahoma City metro as severe storms rolled through Sunday morning.

High winds, hail and torrential rains caused more flooding and dangerous travel.

Wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour drove rain sideways and caused power disruptions and tree damage.

Areas that had flooded recently were flooded again as rainfall rates of more than an inch per hour were recorded.

According to the Oklahoma City Fire Department, since 8 a.m. Sunday, fire crews have responded to 74 calls between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.
