NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Flash flood warnings are in effect across Oklahoma as a slow-moving storm system drops heavy rain across the state.

The National Weather Service issued the warnings for Cotton, Comanche and Tillman counties until 10:30 p.m. Tuesday. Forecasters say as much as 3 inches of rain has already fallen over the area and another 3 inches is possible.

A separate warning was issued for more than a dozen eastern Oklahoma counties until 9:30 p.m. A couple of inches of rain has already fallen across the counties and forecasters say 3 to 4 more inches are possible through the evening hours.

Officials say several roads in the warning areas are impassable due to the rising water and flash flooding will likely occur with additional rainfall over the next several hours.
