GRAND LAKE, OK. --Grand River Dam Authorities tell us they will not close Grand Lake this weekend.
However, they still say no one should have any body contact with the water.

The issue is a blue green algae in the water.
The problem is expected to get worse before it gets better.

The heat is aggravating the problem.
Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and breathing difficulties.

Pets can also be affected if they drink the water.
