NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Norman authorities say a mother, her child and others were rescued from high waters following a short and intense downpour.

Norman Deputy Fire Chief Jim Bailey says responders on Monday afternoon rescued the occupants of three vehicles that stalled out in high water. It is unclear how many people were rescued from the vehicles but Bailey says there were no injuries.

He says the vehicles became stuck in low-lying areas that couldn’t drain fast enough but that much of the water has since receded.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Jonathan Kurtz in Norman says the area received heavy rainfall that lasted about 30 minutes. It wasn’t immediately clear how much rain was dropped by the storms.
