Toxic Algae in Oklahoma Lakes

Oklahoma - The toxic algae blooming in more than a dozen Oklahoma lakes is prompting new warnings from health officials.

Advisories were in effect Sunday for 15 lakes, with two more listed as possibly having toxic levels of algae.

After problems with swimmers falling ill last year, the Oklahoma Tourism Department developed a web site that enables people to check lake conditions, including whether there are dangerous algae plumes.

The web site is checkmyoklake.com.
