Heat Causes Sequoyah County Highway To Buckle

Posted: Updated:
VIAN, Oklahoma -

The summer heat is making a mess of some Oklahoma roads.  Video taken in Sequoyah County Sunday of Highway 64 near Vian shows the roadway buckled, then collapsed.

"When we first got here there was a small bump in the roadway probably a foot or so up in the air. When we arrived on location one of my employees was standing on the roadway and they heard a loud pop and after that it buckled up another four or five foot higher," said Billy Jacobs, Sequoyah County road superintendent. 

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation has reported similar problems in the past in Washington and McIntosh counties. 

Workers say there are no warning signs before a road buckles, it is random and unpredictable.
