With heavy rains expected from Tropical Storm Hermine, it's possible it could affect Lake Okeechobee levels. Right now the lake is at 14.83 feet.

Last week in anticipation of the storm, the Army Corps of Engineers said it was going to maintain current flows from the St. Lucie Locks.

The Corps says their target water levels ranges from 12.5 to 15.5 feet.
