Watch this awesome drone footage of the Medina Lake spillway

All this rain Texas has been getting is a good thing for Medina Lake. The reservoir located on the Medina River in the Hill Country had been at 1,053 feet on May 24, and had been completely dry not too long ago.

Then, on Tuesday morning at 4 a.m., the lake crossed over the spillway at 1,064.57 feet, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Flood stage is 1,064.2 feet.
