Tropical Depression Bill made its presence felt near Falls Creek Wednesday night. Pictures show a bus from First Baptist in Milfay, a community near Stroud, stuck in high water.

Another image makes it look like the empty bus is floating away. We're told there was no one of the bus and that all the kids are safe.

About 600 Tulsa kids are at Falls Creek right now as water continues to rise in the area. All the campers are said to be safe and have moved to cabins on higher ground.

Falls Creek sent out a news release Wednesday night to address the weather situation, saying:

“The Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma's Conference Centers staff confirms that all campers at its campgrounds are safe and all staff are following the proper precautions to ensure camper safety, given flooding in the area. Our trained staff are in close communications with church groups on campus, as camper safety is our top priority.”
