OKLAHOMA CITY —

The Oklahoma City area is experiencing flooding in the wake of Friday's storms that inundated the region with several inches of rain.

Aerial images show muddy water covering roadways around Oklahoma City and El Reno, about 30 miles west of Oklahoma City.

National Weather Service meteorologist Rick Smith said Saturday that parts of the Oklahoma City area received 8 inches of rain overnight.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office said Saturday in a news release that several areas are flooded and that deputies helped with more than 10 high-water rescues overnight. The sheriff's office is also searching for a man whose vehicle was found washed off the road.
