OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Storms that lingered over the Oklahoma City area have brought flooding to several areas.

A number of roads in the metro area had to be closed Thursday morning due to high water. Cars and people were stranded in places and the National Weather Service recommended residents delay traveling until the waters recede.

As the noon hour approached, a flash flood warning was in effect for Canadian, Cleveland, Grady, Kingfisher, Logan, McClain and Oklahoma counties.

In Oklahoma City, officials say SW 104th between Rockwell and Meridian was washed out and a sinkhole formed on Rockwell between SW 74 and SW 89th.

Flooding also affected the Interstate 240 Service Road at South Western.
