This remarkable photograph by Midtown resident Kent Potter and posted on Facebook, was taken at dusk on May 31 (Friday), as 9-10 inches of rain in about 3 hours led to flooding in and around 29th and N. Walker Avenue, in the historic Paseo Neighborhood of Oklahoma City. Some nine to 10 inches fell in the midtown area of Oklahoma’s capital city the night of May 31-June 1, flooding many streets in the area. Some businesses and homes suffered water damage in basement or at ground level – and many cars were flooded out at intersections through the metro. West and south of the Midtown, tornadoes damaged many homes and killed at least five people, including a mother and daughter on Interstate 40 near Yukon.
