“We are encouraging livestock owners to relocate animals to be prepared for possible flood waters,” said Dr. Rod Hall, Oklahoma State Veterinarian. “We have many producers that have already moved animals but we want to ensure that all livestock owners are taking the appropriate measures to prepare for flood waters.”
It is anticipated that water will continue to rise in many areas of the eastern region of the state over the next few days.
