OKLAHOMA COUNTY, Oklahoma — Severe weather in central Oklahoma caused widespread damage and flooding in an already storm-battered region.

Severe flooding took out a chunk of a road in eastern Oklahoma County. Amazingly enough, cars were still driving by on this dangerous highway Saturday morning as water rushed over the road., pouring off in a literal waterfall into a huge sinkhole.

Several tornadoes raged through the Oklahoma City metro area on Friday evening. The death toll was still rising Saturday as officials assessed the storm damage again.

Less than two weeks ago, a massive EF-5 tornado killed 24 people in Moore, Oklahoma and destroyed major parts of the community.
