Another 36' picnic bench goes turtle. Lucky those 8 were close to rescuers. No life jackets? Storm coming? We were out on the lake Wed. evening. Obvious storm approaching. Really obvious if you looked at weather radar on your phone. Wind was light to non existent prior to storm. Were they motoring? Total lack of situational awareness.
