LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued an advisory for small watercraft using the Arkansas River downstream from Little Rock.

The corps said Friday that recent heavy rains have cause flows to rise, creating strong currents and large debris that can threaten the safety of small watercraft such as pleasure boats.

Small craft advisories are issued when flows exceed 70,000 cubic feet per second. Flows at Murray Lock and Dam at Little Rock are about 75,000 cubic feet per second and falling while flows at Mills Dam at Arkansas Post are about 80,000 cubic feet per second and cresting.

The advisory is set to expire on Sunday.
