SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A whirlpool was caught on camera at Wallace Lake Dam in South Shreveport. A video of the dangerous funnel has triggered an investigation to ensure the safety of visitors.

That story, based on a viewer tip, got the Louisiana's Wildlife and Fisheries Department's attention, and they say it does pose a potential danger. Today, they've put up danger/warning signs and are investigating the cause of the whirling water.

KSLA News 12's Emily Black will have more on that tonight at 5 and 6.
