GLADES COUNTY, Fla. -- We're learning more about how Hurricane Dorian impacted Lake Okeechobee.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says the lake saw less rain than anticipated, and the South Florida Water Management District says they received an average of one inch of rainfall throughout the hurricane.
We're told the storm didn't impact the Herbert Hoover Dike at all, either.
The SFWMD says they deactivated their Emergency Operations Center on Wednesday evening, and are working with the Corps to avoid harmful estuary discharges by moving approximately 2,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) of water south from Lake Okeechobee.
The two organizations are holding a joint press conference at 2pm Friday in West Palm Beach to discuss the operations of Lake Okeechobee after Hurricane Dorian. The press conference will be broadcast on Facebook Live through SFWMD's Facebook page.
