OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Some Oklahoma roads are still closed after Tropical Depression Bill dumped several inches of rain across parts of the state this week.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation said Saturday that roads in at least 17 counties were closed either because they were still flooded or debris had been left behind on them after water receded. Some closures also meant detours around flooded areas.

Authorities cautioned drivers to heed warning signs and not drive around barricades and through flooded areas.

The storm system that came ashore Tuesday along the Texas Gulf Coast slowly made its way north into northern Arkansas and southern Missouri on Friday.
