DAVIS, Okla., May 8 (UPI) -- The city of Davis, Okla., shut down park at the state's highest water fall, Turner Falls, after flash floods caused water to gush over the brink.
It was an unusual sight Thursday as the extra rain the central Oklahoma town received Wednesday was sent over the edge of the cataract, inundating the swimming pool belowHoney Creek and the surrounding park lands.
The Davis Police Department posted photos of the impact of the previous nights storm, showing areas where normally people can stand completely under water.
Turner Falls is 77 feet high, making it tied for the tallest water fall in Oklahoma.
Operators said the park was closed until high waters recede.
