According to the department, the man’s vehicle had been swept off the road by floodwaters in Broken Arrow and firefighters used a life safety rope to wade through the current to give him a flotation device. Firefighters pulled the man to safety and he was brought to hospital in a stable condition, they said. On Wednesday, Broken Arrow began issuing voluntary evacuations for residents living in the southern areas of the city, according to reports from KJRH and a post on the city’s Facebook page.
