Chad and Valerie Wagner are without a home today after being rescued by boat from their flooded residence near Banner Road and State Highway 66. By 8:30 a.m., the water had risen so much in their home they had to call for help to get out, Valerie Wagner said. The fire department responded about 9:15 a.m. By 9:30 a.m., firefighters had rescued the couple, their two boys and a dog. The family stood on a bridge as rising water overtook their home. And this is not the first time the couple has watched their home be swallowed up by floodwater. It’s the third. “It’s really baffling. It’s sad because we just finished the house yesterday,” Wagner said. She was referring to finishing repairs to the flood damages caused by a similar storm a year ago. But unlike the two previous floods, the family is leaving for good this time, she said. In the meantime, they will seek housing from the Red Cross. Flooding widespread As water continued to rise in the area, other residents had to be rescued from vehicles and homes, said Jerry Smith, Canadian County Emergency Management Director. El Reno firefighters used boats to reach those who were stranded. “I’m sure there is going to be property damage in homes. The water is rising,” Smith said. Smith said he did not know if anyone was hurt. Terry Floyd, El Reno spokesman, said El Reno firefighters used a boat to reach a woman and her two children who were stranded about 9:30 a.m. just north of SH66 at Richland Road. The mother and children weren’t hurt. Water had surrounded their home. Firefighters used an aluminum motor boat to get through flooded areas. In Yukon, people were removing traffic barriers and driving into high water, police spokeswoman Klare Ly said. Ly said police wrote citations to people who removed barriers. High water areas were reported on State Highway 4 from Ash Street to Wilshire Boulevard, Wagner Road from 11th Street to Sara Road, Richland Road from Foreman Street and Wilshire Boulevard and Mustang Road at Vandament Avenue. In northwest Oklahoma City, two creeks went over their banks and threatened to flood a house at 14705 NW 23, causing firefighters to rescue two adults and three children after the water prevented them from leaving.
