Heavy rains and warm temperatures are causing water run off to raise the John Day River level to dangerous stages.  Wheeler County Sheriff Bob Hudspeth announced that the John Day River is now closed to boaters and rafters from Clarno to Kimberly until further notice: “John Day River is at flood stage and is getting higher, as we speak, it will probably be cresting in another 24 to 36 hours." Hudspeth says no homes are currently in danger and they have placed police barricades near boat entry sites. He adds that any violators will be cited or arrested. Stay tuned to 1110 KBND for further updates on the flooding threat near the John Day River.
