Yes, it is real.  Yes it really did happen.  No one ever expected this to happen, and most of the homeowners affect by this flood never anticipated anything like this to happen.

As you can see my the attached FEMA Flood zones, most of this area was not in the 100-year flood zone.  This was truly an act of God and took everyone by surprise.

Also, you can see by the legend most of the zones in this area had a 0.2% annual chance of flood.  With such small odds, no one ever anticipated these areas to be hit this hard.

There may be some options for these homeowners, but we have to wait to see if FEMA declares it a disaster or not!  Keep your fingers crossed for those residents!

You must be from out of state. Most of Oklahoma is prone to flash flooding.
