FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - State tourism officials are touting six
Web cams that show live lake conditions at Lake Cumberland in
southern Kentucky. Tourism Commissioner Randy Fiveash says the
24-hour Internet access can help visitors plan their vacations.
The lake's water level has been lowered by 43 feet to relieve
pressure on a leaking dam that crews are repairing. But tourism
officials say the Web cams should show that there is still plenty
of water in the lake. A link to the Web cams is available on the
state's tourism Web site, www.kentuckytourism.com. The cameras show the view from docks and marinas.
