Even though plentiful rain is welcomed this time of year before the summer arrives to help with lake levels and agriculture, too much rain can be too much of a good thing. Flash flooding was reported in parts of Texoma, including on Oklahoma Highway 48A north of Milburn. As of 3 PM April 28, one lane of 48A was closed due to the Blue River swelling over its banks.
