(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Governor Keating has declared seven Oklahoma counties disaster areas as a result of weekend flooding.
Keating made the declarations Monday for Creek, Tulsa, Osage, Wagoner, Pawnee, Okmulgee and McIntosh counties.
Those counties now qualify for federal assistance if a presidential declaration is given.
State officials and assessment teams from federal agencies began touring the damage Monday.
