Near catastrophy paddling at Nickajack Lake in TN

It appears all 27 kayakers were wearing PFDs, thankfully. Did anyone think to check the weather forecast?

“The cave tour group (27 kayakers, including children)” - kind of sounds like it was a tour organized by a business. Yikes.

Wow. It’s so important to know the weather. Luckily they stayed in a safe spot until rescued.

Who ever organized this trip should forget about organizing any other trips.
Taking kids spelunking and then paddling in the dark without looking at the weather.
