    OKLAHOMA – Aircrews from the Oklahoma Wing of Civil Air Patrol is flying photographic damage assessment missions in the eastern part of the state following last week’s record-breaking rainfall. “We are using aircraft and aircrew based in Tulsa and Muskogee to survey and document flooding and associated impacts along the Arkansas and Illinois Rivers,” said CAP Lt. Col. Aaron Oliver, Oklahoma Wing director of operations. “We are also using an airplane and crew from Norman to document the impact on the Lake Eufaula area. By the time we are finished, we will have provided images to OEM (Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management) of flood impacts from the Miami area south all the way to Broken Bow, an area of approximately 12,000 square miles.” See video from the flooding on KOKI-TV, the Fox affiliate in Tulsa, and KOCO-TV, the ABC affiliate in Oklahoma City.
