At last check, Lake Lawtonka had six gates open at 36 inches which is draining water into Medicine Creek, so Lawtonka's water level is slowly depleting. However, Lake Ellsworth has all fifteen gates open at 51 inches which is feeding into East Cache Creek. The City of Lawton is still anticipating Cache Creek to peak sometime this evening.

Emergency personnel are stressing that Comanche County residents stay off the roads as much as possible, and obey all posted signs and  barricades. They are there for your safety, and under no circumstances should you enter high water. Please be extra cautious at night, as visibility will be decreased and it will be more difficult to judge how deep the water on the roadways is.
