WAYNE COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Wappapello Lake overtook the Auxiliary Spillway around 9 a.m. on Monday, May 1.

Knowing that many people are curious, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said that a limited number of cars will be allowed in at a time to see the lake.

As of Friday, May 5, the lake was at 396.3 NGVD.

Highway T near the dam was washed away by the overflow water.

According to the Corps, Wappapello Lake was cresting just after 9 a.m. on Tuesday, May 2, at 398.1 feet, which is lower and earlier than originally predicted. The Corps warns that just because it's cresting does not mean the water level could not change. The crest is based on current conditions.

The top of the Auxiliary Spillway is 394.74 feet NGVD.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop E tweeted drone video of the Wappapello Lake Spillway:
