Tulsa health officials are cautioning residents to be aware of the natural stench that comes as the water continues to recede after last week's historic flooding. The Tulsa World reports experts say the smells can be mold decay, unrecognizable scents, or the odors from sewage or chemicals. Experts also noted the odor of stagnant water and decaying vegetation. Storm-weary Oklahomans were gutting waterlogged homes Sunday as the river continued its slow crest rolling hundreds of miles downstream.
