OKLAHOMA CITY -

Several area lakes are being shut down in some areas Monday morning due to the historic flooding over the weekend.

Overnight, we learned nearly all public access at Arcadia Lake will be closed on Monday due to flooding. These closures include beaches, boat ramps, docks, all trails and new arrival camping.

General day-use and sightseeing is not allowed at this time. As of Sunday afternoon, lake levels were approximately eleven feet above normal water elevation.

Lake Thunderbird is dealing with flooding and is closed for boating. All ramps are closed. Lake Thunderbird Authority began releasing water from the Lake Thunderbird Dam at an increased rate due to the lake being full.

Residents living in the Little River area from 180th to county line should expect further flooding and be prepared to seek higher ground.
