Dam Release: Fort Gibson

Several days of heavy rains in its drainage basin left Ft. Gibson Reservoir more than 15 feet high, forcing releases from its massive hydroelectric dam just to bring down floodwaters surrounding the lake. This turned the downstream Grand (Neosho) River into a speedy and turbulent torrent wholly unfit for any manner of navigation!
