Record amounts of rainfall over the holiday weekend caused all kinds of problems across the state.

The rains started on Friday. Wave after wave fell all weekend. It forced some Oklahoma state parks to close because of flooding.

And the heavy rains caused some power outages to several hundred customers. The biggest problem was from fallen trees on branches.

Officials say the rainy weekend has ended the Tulsa area's 4-year dry spell and helped diminish the ozone danger for the city.
