Several roads are flooded and closed in the Skiatook area, and drivers will have a hard time getting through that area Tuesday morning.

Most routes out of town are flooded and the water keeps moving closer to downtown.

A truck stalled while trying to drive through the water.

The police department says the only way out of town right now is to take Lake Road over the dam to 52nd West Avenue.

Many people had said it has been a long time, if ever, that they've seen flooding like this in town. 

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said they are rescuing five families who were trapped by the flooding - using an air boat on city streets.
