Press Release from Branson Fire & Rescue

Table Rock Dam began releasing approximately 7,000 cubic feet per second from gates 3-9 Saturday morning. In combination with generation, the total flow will be approximately 14,000 cfs.

In addition to this, inflows from area streams may cause Lake Taneycomo to reach or slightly go out of its banks in low lying areas.

For those residents and businesses along the lake, please be mindful lake levels will increase and have fast moving water.

As a reminder, never enter flood waters… turn around – don’t drown!
