    The risk of inclement weather was apparent a few hours before the tragedy at the tourist site occurred.

    Stormy weather has led to a tragedy near Branson, Missouri, where up to 17 people died and at least seven were injured due to a shipwreck, according to the authorities. The boat with 31 people on board capsized earlier this week in the rough waters of Table Rock Lake.

    The authorities did not explain why people ignored the signs of the approaching storm and decided to set sail anyway.
