Oklahoma Roadways Still Slick, Closed in 8 Counties
Roadways in eight northwest Oklahoma counties are still closed or considered hazardous, but an Oklahoma Department of Transportation spokesman says almost 600 plow and truck drivers are working to clear Monday's heavy snowfall.
Here's a look at the closed highways in Oklahoma, as of 4:30 p.m. Tuesday:
• Alfalfa Co: SH-45 is closed between the Garfield county line and SH-8 in Alfalfa County.
• Garfield Co: SH-132 one mile south of the Grant county line due to downed power lines.
• Grant Co: US-81 between Medford and Pond Creek.
• Noble Co: SH-15 is closed between US-77 and I-35 in Noble County.
• Harper Co: US-183 from US-64 north into Kansas
• Harper Co: SH-149 closed within Harper County
• Harper Co: SH-46 closed within Harper County
• Harper Co: US-64 closed between US-283 and the Beaver county line.
• Ellis Co: All highways closed.
• Beaver Co: All highways closed.
• Woodward Co: All highways closed.
The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety says all or most roads are closed from Beaver County in the Panhandle westward to Alfalfa County and southward to Roger Mills County. The highways affected include U.S. Highway 64 west from Alva and U.S. 60 between Seiling and Vici. All roads in Woods County are either snow-packed or hazardous.
ODOT spokesman Larry Clore says wind is blowing snow back onto some cleared roads but the sun is helping. Several road clearing crews have been brought in from south Oklahoma to help.

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
