Floodwater Safety

Use caution when dealing with flood waters. Flood waters may contain snakes and insects; sharp objects and debris; and oil, gasoline, industrial waste, or raw sewage.

To avoid illness and injury from floodwaters, the Oklahoma State Dept. of Health suggests the following:
* Keep children and pets from playing in flood water.
* Clean all items touched by floodwaters, including children’s toys. Use one cup of household bleach in five gallons of water.
* Throw away items that cannot be washed such as mattresses, stuffed animals, baby toys, and wood cutting boards, as well as food that may have come into contact with flood waters.
* Wash hands often with soap and clean water or use an alcohol-based sanitizer.
* Seek immediate attention if you become injured or ill.
* To protect your family and yourself, avoid floodwaters if possible.

AMBER ALERT-OKLAHOMA

DELAWARE COUNTY, Okla. (KFSM) — An Amber Alert was issued for two young Oklahoma children on Thursday (April 20) who are believed to have been taken by their mother.

Police are searching for Maxwell Keener, 2-months-old, and Adelyn Keener, 20-months-old, according to an alert.

Maxwell has brown hair and blue eyes and he weighs about 12-15 pounds, and Adelyn has hazel eyes and blonde hair and weighs about 30 pounds.

The suspect, Sarah Jane Lewis, is 31, 5’8″ with brown hair and brown eyes.

The woman and two children were last seen in Payne County, Oklahoma, the alert states. The details of this case came to light on April 18 in Jay, Oklahoma.

A warrant has been issued for Lewis for child endangerment.

Officials said the children are in immediate danger because Lewis has been accused of using meth while in their presence.

She is believed to be driving a silver 2002 Infiniti I-35 with Oklahoma plates of 107 FCR.

Anyone who sees the children or suspects should contact the Delaware County Sheriff’s Department at 918-253-4531 or call 911.
