Ferry likely to close with high water

If you need to make a trip across the Ohio River at the Cave In Rock Ferry, it would be advisable to do it now.

The Ohio River is already up significantly as attested by this photo taken Tuesday morning.

With projected heavy rainfall headed this way, the river is expected to rise quickly this week and crest sometime the middle of next week.

The ferry commonly must close when the river stage reaches 42.5 feet at Shawneetown. It was at 37.1 and rising last night.
