Officials: Roughly 600 Tulsa structures swamped after flood


TULSA, Okla. (AP) — About 600 Tulsa County homes and business were inundated during last week's historic flooding along the swollen Arkansas River, city officials said.

Joe Kralicek, executive director of the Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency, said roughly half of the swamped structures were in the unincorporated Town and County addition west of Tulsa suburb Sand Springs, the Tulsa World reported.

Sand Springs was among the first communities flooded when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began releasing more water from a dam upriver to control more severe flooding elsewhere.
