KEYSTONE DAM RELEASE UPDATE - 5/30/19
The Keystone Dam release rate is gradually decreasing over the next several days.
However, the flooding threat along the Arkansas River remains as the water is still out of its banks in certain areas. Listen to first responders in your area and stay plugged into local news stations and Jenks social media sites.
Police continue to urge people to not drive or walk around barricades. These barricades are put up for the safety of everyone. 96th Pedestrian Bridge and River Parks Trails remains closed.
Residents are advised to stay away from floodwater and standing waters as they can be dangerous. Floodwaters can contain harmful debris, sewage and snakes. The Tulsa Health Department is offering tetanus shots at no cost at any of its immunization clinics during normal working hours. For hours and locations, call (918)-582-9355.
