More rain forecast for soggy eastern Oklahoma

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — More rain is forecast for parts of eastern Oklahoma already dealing with flooding from recent storms.

Warning Coordination Meteorologist Greg Carbin at the National Storm Prediction Center in Norman says far southeastern Oklahoma and Arkansas are most at risk for severe weather Tuesday. He says the storm system should begin moving east by early Wednesday.

National Weather Service forecaster Mike Teague in Tulsa said parts of Cherokee County and Adair County that received more than a foot of rain during the weekend could get up to another inch Tuesday.

The Illinois River was well above flood stage Tuesday. The weather service reports the river at more than 26 feet at Watts and about 25 feet at Tahlequah.

The flood stage is 13 feet at Watts and 11 feet at Tahlequah.
