OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Danger from high water has prompted authorities to temporarily close access to the Elkhorn River in eastern Nebraska’s Douglas County.

John Winkler is general manager of the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District, and he said in a Thursday news release that the access sites are being closed for safety reasons. The river’s running high because of the recent heavy rain, which he says makes boating extremely perilous.

No reopening date has been determined.
