The United States Army Corps of Engineers will increase water flow of Keystone Dam to 160,000 cubic feet per second at 6 p.m.

To put that in perspective, the Army Corps of Engineers says that's like 1.2 million milk jugs being released per second. Officials say folks will start to see an impact by daybreak tomorrow and can expect issues for the rest of the week and into the weekend.

The City of Tulsa says a couple of areas should start taking precautions for potential flooding and get ready to evacuate.

The City of Sand Springs has already advised residents to evacuate due to the potential for flooding and road closings in the area downstream near the Meadow Valley housing neighborhood.
