Breaking: Two dead after vehicle is swept away by flood waters


On August 14th, two Montgomery County men were killed when their vehicle was swept off the road during heavy rainfall. The two were identified as Dennis Clark Catron Sr., 72, and Dennis Clark Catron Jr., 39, of rural Elk City. This incident happened on CR 2950 south of CR 5400.

During the heavy rain, deputies responded to multiple calls of stranded motorists. In some cases, rural firefighters and deputies were going door to door to warn individuals of high waters.

Deputies also responded to an incident at CR 4500 and CR 5000 where a vehicle was found on its side in the ditch. No one was found in or around the vehicle and attempts to contact the owner of the vehicle was unsuccessful.

During the storms, the northern part of Montgomery County received high amounts of rain. Rain fall totals for the area range between seven to eleven inches unofficially.
