STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Oktibbeha County EMA Director Kristen Campanella said the lake's water level is down 6 inches, so she will not upgrade the emergency action plan to a "warning" status.
The county's engineer sent survey teams to evaluate Oktibbeha County Lake after heavy rains pushed the level back up.
Campanella said she hopes to keep the water level down as she expects potential rainfall Sunday.
