WORTHINGTON - Lake Okabena is in a no wake zone until further notice, Nobles County Sheriff Kent Wilkening announced Friday morning.

Due to the consistent rainfall Wednesday and into early Thursday, high water levels and debris floating in Worthington's lake have made operating watercraft at speeds greater than a closed throttle unsafe, Wilkening said.

“I would encourage people to stay off the lake until the water levels go down,” he said.
