Second death from flooding reported in central Oklahoma

A second death has been reported from the flooding that has hit central Oklahoma since Monday, authorities have confirmed.

A woman rescued from a submerged vehicle near Wellston in floodwaters in Lincoln County died, an emergency management spokesperson said.

High water had been reported near U.S. 177 and State Highway 66 east of Wellston, and the vehicle was swept off a roadway about 11:32 a.m. Tuesday, said Wendi Marcy, Lincoln County Emergency Management director.

Dorothy Jean Cook, 76, of Wilburton, apparently drove around barricades and the car stalled on the highway, Marcy said. Emergency workers took her to a Stillwater hospital where she died.

On Tuesday, a Perkins woman, Laura Renee Moorman, 53, drowned when she drove around a high water warning sign south of State Highway 33and vehicle was swept into 10-feet of water.

In Logan County, five houses have been destroyed by floodwaters from the Cimarron River that has risen out of its banks since Monday, said Lori Dahlem, volunteer firefighter in the Twin Lakes community. Three families have been displaced.

Three houses went into the river Wednesday afternoon and two more are teetering halfway over banks above water Thursday morning. The water is receding, but more rain could cause more damage to homes, she said. And her own house is not far from the water's edge, she said, talking on a cellphone near the floodwaters. The riverbanks are eroding rapidly, she said.

"Right now I am here, and I can hear the ground falling under a house," Dahlem said.

There is a possibility of more rain in the Oklahoma City area Thursday and Friday, the National Weather Service reported.
