With more rain in the forecast, flooding is still a concern for several Oklahoma counties.

Areas south of Tulsa have the most water - like in Pittsburg County, where flooded roads are forcing drivers to turn around.

It won't take much more rain to flood roads where the water is already so close to overtaking the pavement.

Pilot Will Kavanagh flew Osage SkyNews 6 HD into LeFlore County Tuesday afternoon to see the damage already done.

One place that's been affected is the Choctaw Nation Healthcare Center emergency room, which, according to KSFM in Fort Smith, is closed due to flooding.

Officials said the emergency room has four inches of water in it.

They said it is unknown at this time if any patients have been evacuated or if the flooding has affected any other parts of the hospital.
