Governor Nixon Declares the Entire Lake a No-Wake Zone

The entire Lake of the Ozarks is currently under a no-wake restriction. Not since 1993 (yeah, *that* year) has such an order been given.  With the lake cresting at nearly 663', the second highest ever, damage to surrounding property and shoreline would be incalculable if normal boat traffic was allowed while the lake remains high.

It appears that if Ameren can get the lake back around 661', which could be by Saturday at the rate it's going, the ban will be lifted.
