Yes. That's where labeling areas as safe gets dangerous. Okeechobee has overflowed it's banks and flooded a huge area before. They've been drawing it to down to try to safeguard this time, but it's still at 13.68 ft and flood level is 17 ft so definitely a concern. They'd just gotten it up to great levels for crossing and now can't get it down rapidly enough.
