OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma highway officials say many roads are impassable in the state because of wintry weather, downed power lines or flooding.

Parts of western and central Oklahoma are under a winter storm warning until midday Monday while flooding is a major concern in the eastern part of the state.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says roads are slick and hazardous in Woodward, Harper and Ellis counties in northwest Oklahoma. Interstate 35 is also slick in Cleveland County and near Purcell.

The department says high water has caused the closure of some roads in Atoka, Bryan, Cherokee, Coal, Haskell, Johnston, Latimer, Leflore, Love, Mayes, McCurtain, Muskogee, Nowata, Okfuskee, Ottawa, Pittsburg, Pushmataha, Sequoyah and Wagoner counties.
