JOHNSTON COUNTY, Okla. (KTEN) — Some areas of Johnston County received an average of 4-5 inches of rainfall on Sunday evening, resulting in major flooding that impacted bodies of water and roadways.

"I had one report this morning that someone had said they received eight inches of rain."

"It just, out of nowhere, started pouring down rain.” Said Ravia’s Meagan Kite. “The road was flooded, the bridge was flooded, we were just kinda stuck out here."

The Kite family is all too familiar with how dangerous the bridge over Sand Creek can be.

"My husband's grandma actually died going over that bridge, probably about twenty years ago.” Kite said. “She got swept away on that same bridge."

On Sunday night, that bridge was almost uncrossable, with water rising up over ten feet and covering the crossing.

Johnston County Emergency Management Director Jason Bryant believes this spring season has been one of the wettest on record.

"We've had a lot of different rain events throughout the years.” Bryant said. “2015, 2016, 2018, we had some times that we had localized rain, and this one's chocking up to be, it's gonna be pretty memorable."

Bryant wants to remind the public of the age-old saying: turn around, don't drown.

"It may not look like much, and you may be familiar with the roadways, but you don't know what, what the water has done underneath the road."
