OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Governor Henry says damage assessments of flooded areas of Oklahoma will begin Monday. The governor says teams from the Department of Emergency Management, Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Small Business Administration will start assessing damage in Shawnee and Pottawatomie County. Officials with the Shawnee-Pottawatomie County Emergency Management office will join in the assessment.

Henry says more than 100 homes and businesses in the Shawnee and Tecumseh areas are damaged because of the flooding. The governor says damage assessments will be scheduled later in Comanche County and in counties along the Red River.

All 77 counties in Oklahoma remain under a state of emergency declared by Henry in May.
