Fourth of July shoppers were forced to seek higher ground after waves of brown rusty water flooded the ground floor of an Oklahoma mall, according to the Oklahoma City Fire Department. At least 3-5 inches of murky water inundated Macy's, forcing the entire mall to shut down.
The water created an island near Penn Square, trapping several people.

Workers were seen sifting through the water on four-wheeled vessels.
