As of 2:30 we were .17 feet from flood stage.
I called the Kootenai County Sheriff's department and asked a few questions.
Public disclosure of the no wake zone designation will be going out via traditional media outlets in the morning, i.e. newspapers and TV.
No postings at launch sites.
A normal wake zone violation is $57 with no indication on your record.
A flood stage wake zone violation is a misdemeanor and will be sorted out in court!
The deputies will be a bit lenient since official word will just be out about the no wake zone, but will definitely ticket repeat offenders.
Now the bad news... expect this to last thru memorial weekend.
