High water has damaged county roads across Oklahoma, in some cases washing out whole sections. Flooding has also closed some state highways, mostly in southeastern Oklahoma.

In some cases flood water is still blocking the roadway. In others, crews have been overwhelmed by the damage and haven't had a chance to even begin assessing all the damage.
