News On 6's WARN team tracked showers and thunderstorms moving across Green Country Wednesday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a small stream flood advisory for Creek, Okfuskee and Okmulgee counties because of all the rain which has fallen overnight. The NWS says excessive runoff is causing small streams and creeks to flood low lying areas.

Early Wednesday, the NWS issued a tornado warning for Creek County because of rotation spotted on radar. That warning expired at 3:15 a.n.  So far there has been no reports of any damage from that storm.

Because of the rain, Tulsa area roads are wet and in some locations, water has pooled on roadways which is slowing traffic.
