Hundreds of families are expected to have some fun in the sun this weekend on Lake Texoma, but last week’s downpour or rain made the waters a little more dangerous.


Eisenhower State Park Supervisor Matthew Harwood reported that in the last several days the water level has been on the rise. As the water level rises, especially if you're out on the boat, as you're working closer to the shore just be aware there are some things that are submerged that didn't use to be.


There is a lot of different kinds of debris officials say could cause a lot of trouble. A lot of it is whole trees and logs and a lot of stuff submerged under the water. A lot of it is floating said Oklahoma Highway Lake Patrol Trooper Dustin Pruitt.


According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the water rose almost five feet in four days.
