   Whenever the occurrence of any disaster, emergency or other condition
   shall render the use of any state or federal highway or detour
   dangerous to the public, or whenever the use thereof would interfere
   with disaster relief or rescue work, the Director of Highways, or such
   other person or employee as may be designated by said Director, shall
   have authority to close such highway, or portion thereof, as may be
   necessary until said emergency condition shall no longer exist. The
   Commissioner of Public Safety, or any member of the Oklahoma Highway
   Patrol, shall have like authority with respect to the closing of
   highways for a period of six (6) hours after the occurrence of such
   emergency condition, but upon exercising such authority the
   Commissioner of Public Safety, or highway patrolman, shall forthwith
   notify the Director of Highways of such action.
