NWS Tallahassee has advised that local flood warnings are still in effect for the Suwannee River basin. Sheriff Johnny Smith has decided to re-open all launch sites in the county. Should that prediction of rising water begin to cause problems on the Suwannee River, it could prompt a second closure. The situation will be closely monitored daily and advance warning of any impending boat ramp closures will be announced.
The Sheriff cautions boaters who decide to travel on the waterways of Levy County exercise additional caution. With all the recent rains and associated run-off, excessive debris will be floating our river making navigation more hazardous.
