CHOCTAW, Oklahoma –

Flooding has led to erosion along the Canadian River in northeast Choctaw near the Canadian River, and threatened structures sitting precariously on the river’s edge.

A family living at 3800 N. Triple X Road is voluntarily evacuating from their property after the erosion swallowed one outbuilding. The edge of the river is now creeping closer to the family’s house.
