Lake Texoma Flooding

I have been keeping up with the water levels of Lake Texoma over the past few days, as have thousands of other people, so I wanted to give you all a brief update on lake conditions. Lake Texoma is continuing to flow over the spillway this morning; the current lake level is at 643.67 feet and rising. This is the second time in a month for the lake to eclipse the 640 feet spillway rim. Lake Texoma will continue to increase in level as the inflow is significantly greater than the outflow release, and should crest early next week around 645.8 feet. If this crest level does come to fruition, it would be the highest level the lake has seen since 1944–even beating the crest of 645.72 feet back in May of this year.
