MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kayakers and canoeists are being advised to stay off Minnehaha Creek until further notice.

Officials with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District say fast-moving water and high water levels caused by recent rains have created unsafe conditions.

District spokeswoman Telly Mamayek says some underpasses may not be passable in a kayak or a canoe.

She tells Minnesota Public Radio News (https://bit.ly/1ogo3so ) that the creek may also contain debris that’s been shaken loose by running water.
