Thirteen inches of rain in less than 24 hours, a record according to the city of Tulsa, closed 21st Street at the Mingo Creek bridge. The rains caused the creek to flood much of the area, which washed out a detour bridge north of the 21st Street bridge. 21st Street now is gone under I-44, and crews are building a temporary roadway in this location. This area was inundated in the flood. Photograph taken May 31, 1984.
