Rainfall over the past couple of days has many rivers and creeks in northeastern Oklahoma at or above flood stage.

Flood stage for the Caney River is 26 feet at Ramona and Collinsville and as of noon Friday, the river at Ramona was just over 26 feet and at Collinsville it was just over 28 feet.

The National Weather Service says moderate flooding is possible Friday evening and Saturday morning. Flooding in the area has already closed some county roads in Washington and Tulsa counties.

There is a risk of moderate flooding forecast for Bird Creek near Sperry.

The National Weather Service says the flood warning will remain in effect because of the potential for more rain Friday night and early Saturday.
