Cave In Rock Ferry will close today

The river was high and swift when this photo was
taken on Wednesday of this week.
The Cave In Rock Ferry is expected to close this afternoon due to rising floodwaters on the Ohio River.

Ferry operator Lonnie Lewis said that based on forecasted river stages, service will likely end around noon today.

The ferry is generally is forced to halt service when the Ohio River reaches about 41.5 ft at Shawneetown. This morning the river was at 40.94 there.
