Oklahoma's drought is getting worse, and there's not much relief in sight.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Skiatook Lake is about 5 feet below normal. The Corps is alerting boaters to potential dangers because of the low water.

Also, flow of water in the Illinois River is about a third of what it should be this time of year, and summer has just begun.
