SKIATOOK, Okla. — SKIATOOK, Okla. -- Two weeks after historic flooding across Green Country, Skiatook businesses are still cleaning up the mess left behind.

City Manager Dan Yancey estimates about 20 homes were affected by the flooding, mostly near the intersection of Highways 11 and 20.

Yancey said some fencing around city parks was damaged, but the bulk of the flood impact was elsewhere.

Tastee Freez, a Skiatook staple, closed for five days after they received about two inches of flood water inside their restaurant.

"You've got to hose all the muck out because if it sticks to the walls and dries you’ll never get it off, so you hose everything out and you start cleaning with bleach," said Lisa Little, Owner of Tastee Freez.

Other businesses weren't so lucky. A gas station and Dollar General are closed until further notice while they clear out the stores to clean up the damage inside.
