Storm damage reports continue to come in from this week's storms. Fort Gibson Lake received damage in several areas, including Long Bay Marina. It's about five miles west of Wagoner. 

Long Bay said they have 30 brand new slips that flipped over with boats also upside down.

Four boats flipped over with the docks and boat lifts, their Facebook page states. 

You can see a pontoon that's partially sticking out of the water. No time is a good time to have something like this happen, but with Memorial Day weekend coming up it's a rough start for them.

It's going to a slow stop for a lot of local lakes because of the high water levels. It's going to take some time for them to come down to closer to normal levels.

If you're out on Memorial Day, be safe as you celebrate at Oklahoma lakes!
