NPR: Flooding in Guthrie (Aug 19, 2007)
The remnants of Tropical Storm Erin fueled torrential rains from Texas to Minnesota, leaving death and destruction in their wake. Emergency crews spent the day cleaning up and surveying the damage after flooding killed at least twenty people in three states. In Oklahoma and Texas, the storm dumped up to a foot of rain, causing tens of thousands of power outages, road closures and evacuations. In Kingfisher, Oklahoma, where police made daring helicopter rescues of stranded residents yesterday, the floodwaters have begun receding, but they reached their peak today in the city of Guthrie, about 30 miles north of Oklahoma City. Guests include Guthrie Fire Chief Lester Brown and city residents Dean Hopkins, Rose Glover and Rose Fox.
