High Waters Ban Boats from Cedar River

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- The Cedar Rapids Fire Department is cautioning boaters to stay off the Cedar River for part of this weekend due to high water.
   Cedar Rapids prohibits boats from being in the river when the level is 13 feet or higher.
   Because recent rains earlier this week are expected to cause the river to swell above 13 feet, barricades will be placed in front of boat ramps from 8 p.m. Friday until 8 a.m. Sunday.
   The river is considered dangerous for boating during high water because of strong currents and rapidly moving debris.
