Floodwaters Prompt Evacuation Warning

GAGE, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities were forced to evacuate one home Friday near Gage after the Wolf Creek in northwest Oklahoma flooded its banks. Ellis County Emergency Manager Russell Miller says the creek crested about 10 a.m. Friday and that the floodwaters are now receding. He says some cattle are stranded along some high spots in the floodwaters, but that most homes in the area are safe.

Flood waters spread more than a mile beyond the banks of the creek, and the National Weather Service reported water topped a bridge that crosses the creek along State Highway 46. Miller says that road remains closed.
