MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – Because of heavy rains and rising lake levels, the Army Corps of Engineers is advising visitors to use caution in flooded areas at parks, boat launch ramps and at some access roads around Norfork and Bull Shoals lakes.
Some roads have been closed or barricaded because of flooding; and lake access points may be limited because of public safety concerns. If an area is closed or barricaded, please use an alternative access point until the lake level recedes and the area is reopened.
Corps officials encourage lake visitors to use extreme caution if boating on Bull Shoals because of the amount of debris in the water. Go slowly, and watch for debris floating just under the water's surface. Hook up your kill switch and wear a life jacket. Heed signs and traffic cones around launch ramps.
Daily lake information can be obtained at www.swl-wc.usace.army.mil or the Corps’ mobile App which can be found in mobile App stores by searching for USACE Little Rock.
