Water has dropped enough to allow homeowners back into the evacuated town of Webbers Falls in Muskogee County. But Mayor Sandy Wright says they can only stay a few hours to assess and start cleanup.

For the time being, residents are only allowed into the city between 8am and 6pm. A temporary water line is hooked up, but the sewer system is still down. Mayor Wright says residents won’t be allowed back in until it’s repaired. She says it will take until at least next week to make those necessary repairs.
