Ribbon Cutting Planned for Bridge #80 over Salt Creek

Yale OK – A ribbon cutting was held for the newly constructed Bridge #80 over Salt Creek on September 19 at 1:30 pm, according to Commissioner Zac Cavett, Payne County District 1. The bridge was designed by EST Engineering of Norman, OK.
The new 243 foot prestressed concrete beam bridge was constructed by K & R Builders, Inc., Oklahoma City, OK. It replaces the original 90-foot Pony Truss bridge built in 1920 that had to be closed due to structural deficiencies.
Funding for the $769,370 bridge was provided by Oklahoma’s County Improvements for Roads and Bridges (CIRB) Program. This program funding comes from a portion of the State’s Motor Vehicle Collection Tax.

We are expecting another round of heavy rain through tomorrow morning. Please use extreme caution while traveling.

Dangerous Flooding Possible Today Into Saturday Morning!

Additional heavy rainfall, as much as 3-5+ inches, will be possible across mainly portions of northern and central Oklahoma today into Saturday morning. This additional rainfall will be especially dangerous in those areas that have ongoing flooding problems and would likely lead to life-threatening conditions in some locations. Be aware that this could mean that locations that have never flooded before may flood this weekend.

Your safety depends upon avoiding flooded areas and heeding evacuation directives from local officials. Do not attempt to cross roads covered by flood waters, even if barricades are not present. Turn Around, Don't Drown! Check often for the latest forecast and current conditions. Stay Safe Everyone!

Payne County Emergency Management

Payne County Emergency Management

Today's weather is to be taken very seriously. Not only is Payne County in a high hazard for tornadoes but also a high risk for flooding. The tornado risk is very serious and dangerous, but also is the flooding risk. Our soil is so saturated and the flood control structures in Payne County are already full that flooding should be considered a huge threat. All low lying areas of Payne County should be expected to flood today and tonight and even through tomorrow. Areas around the river will also be flooded from extensive river levels. Large hail and high winds will also be a threat for today and overnight. This is a good time to prepare to activate your emergency plans. This event getting ready to take place could be historic and should not be taken lightly. Continue to monitor the weather and do not hesitate to take shelter when storms threaten your area. Conditions are in place where most storms today and tonight will be tornadic. The risk will not be going away after dark as happens frequently. This is a particularly dangerous situation. Prayers for all. No need to be frightened but you do need to be prepared. I will update as I can.

Please stay weather aware today. Significant amount of rain is expected to fall across the county through tomorrow morni...

Please stay weather aware today. Significant amount of rain is expected to fall across the county through tomorrow morning. Do NOT drive through flooded roadways!

SIGNIFICANT SEVERE WEATHER AND FLOODING LIKELY TODAY AND TONIGHT!

Multiple rounds of storms will be possible today across portions of Oklahoma and north Texas. The first round of storms is already underway. At 8:45 AM a line of severe storms was moving across portions of NW OK with other scattered showers and storms developing across portions of northern and central OK. The storms in NW Oklahoma are expected to continue to move across northern and central portions of the area this morning. Some of the storms could be severe with large hail and strong winds the main concern.

Round 2 is expected this afternoon and evening with additional storms developing and moving across portions of Oklahoma and northern Texas. These storms will likely be severe with very large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes possible.

Round 3 would be later this evening into Tuesday morning as a squall line moves across the area. Severe storms will continue to be possible with this line with damaging winds and large hail possible. The potential for tornadoes will NOT go completely away overnight.

There is also an increasing concern of flash flooding across the area today and tonight with 5+ inches of rain possible in some areas.

In summary, significant severe weather and flooding are possible today and tonight across portions of Oklahoma and north Texas with tornadoes, very large hail, and damaging winds possible. Have a plan in place of where you are going to go to stay safe if you need to and don't forget your pets, keep an eye on the weather and have several ways to get warnings, and check the forecast often for the latest updates. Remember, not to drive on flooded roadways. You don't know how deep the water is or if the roadway is still there. Turn Around Don't Drown and Stay Safe Everyone!
