I can only imagine the decisions they are having to make. The Red River Basin is full

Above Texoma –

              Altus/Lugert normal/seasonal pool is 98% full.

              Tom Steed flood control pool is 41.74% full.

              Waurika Lake normal/seasonal pool is 98% full.– got to release.

              Foss in still below normal pool.

              Arbuckle is flood control pool is 111.75% full – got to release.

              Texoma is Flood control pool is 128.38% full and 26 feet high – got to release.   

 

Down Stream –

              McGee Creek is 6’ high and 3% over flood stage – got to release

              Pat Maze is 9’high and 3% over flood stage – got to release

              Sardis 11’ high and 55% over flood stage – got to release.

Hugo is 33’ high, Flood control pool is 103.90% full and has water in state park cabins. – got to release

              Pine Creek is some 37’ high and 1% over flood stage. Got to release.

              Broken Bow – 24’ high and Flood control pool is 96.70% full.  Got to release.

 

Red River out of Oklahoma to Shreveport down to the Mississippi….will Little Rock and New Orleans districts get their panties in a wad?  The Arkansas River Basin come to play sometime - Kaw, Keystone, GRDA lakes, Tenkiller, Eufaula are all full.

 

Anything they do will get criticism.  What a video game this could be………….No win situation.

These lakes were all built for a purpose.  When they get this high the only choice is to release.  They can't let the dams wash out.  Hopefully the spillways and gate systems at the other lakes will be as effective as Texoma.

It isn't over yet....[frown]

I believe Texoma has now broken the old record of 644.76.  Level is now at 644.89

rained over 5 inches around Lawton and Waurika last night. Major flooding all headed to Red river.  Waurika is right at normal pool. Won't release any water unless it gets another 10-11 ft. high which prolly won't happen but who knows this year.  Lake Ellsworth at Lawton has had the flood gates open full for more than a week and can't make any headway. Dumping all that water into Cache creek and down to Red River. Supposed to have maybe 2+ inches more rain this evening according to the weather tv guy. All bad news for Texoma.

Where's that guy who told me I was wrong when I said the COE needed to open the gates and that there was a wall of water coming a few weeks back?


I think we can all agree now that they screwed up.

Speak for yourself....I don't. 
Nothing like a 2nd guesser that doesn't know all the facts, if you do, please share them 

Too bad you didn't advise the Corps had let the lake go down to 580 feet last year so we would be in great shape now. [rolleyes]

Lots of factors that the COE has to play/work with in the situation that has hit the Red River ...yes they will get some criticism. Hoping for less rain in the Red River watershed area.  

Good luck - Love Texoma - I'll be there mid-summer.
