We have an update on Lake Okeechobee levels.

The Army Corps say the lake has dropped more than a tenth of a foot since they increased water releases in late February.

They are releasing water now, ahead of the rainy season to reduce having to do harmful releases over the summer.

The Lake Okeechobee releases are scheduled to end March 16th, but that could be extended if we started getting a lot of rain.
