Forecasters Warn of Flash Floods in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas Over Holiday Weekend


Forecasters are warning of a wet and potentially dangerous holiday weekend for already waterlogged Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

The National Weather Service said flooding could last for weeks along the Red River in Arkansas, the Nueces River in Texas near the Mexico border, and the Wichita River in Texas.

Flash-flood watches were posted Friday for parts of North Texas and almost all of Oklahoma.

More rain in Wichita Falls, Texas, on Friday pushed the total for May to 13.3 inches, the most there in any month on record. Fort Smith, Arkansas, has already posted its wettest May on record, 13.8 inches, and Oklahoma City seemed certain to set a similar record.
