With the Oologah Lake 27-feet above normal, all that water is flowing south toward Claremore and northern Wagoner County, where the river is now into major flood stage.

Drone footage provided by Michael Reskovac shows the Verdigris River at the Newt Graham Lock and Dam, which is south of Inola.

You can see the water is spilling over the banks in some areas, flooding nearby fields.
