Crews working to secure floating island in Waynesboro

Floating island in Waynesboro

WAYNESBORO, GA (WFXG) - The Burke County Sheriff's Office is working to deal with a floating island in the lake behind Lake View Restaurant in Waynesboro.

Officials' best guess is that a large part of the embankment broke off due to heavy rains and is now floating in the lake. Crews are working to secure the floating grass to make sure it doesn't block spillways.
