WHOA: Flood Waters Threaten River Spirit Casino In Tulsa
TULSA, Oklahoma - Tulsa's River Spirit Casino is still closed Thursday morning as water from the river has come up over the banks and is now flooding the property. The property will remain closed through at least Sunday, the resort announced.
“We remain fortunate that our engineering design accounted for a 100-year-flood. However, this level of water was not a previous measurement. The new water level being released today is increasing the water on our south and north parking lots, on the front service road, on the south great lawn, in the subterranean parking and on our service road leading to our loading docks,” said CEO Pat Crofts.
“All of the Resort hotel, Margaritaville and Ruth’s Chris restaurants, Margaritaville and River Spirit Casinos, Paradise Cove Theater all remain, and will remain dry. The Resort Pool is at the biggest risk at this time.”
