Upper Potomac River too hazardous for recreational boating, Md. DNR advises

April 30, 2008

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) -- Maryland Natural Resources Police are warning recreational boaters to stay off the Upper Potomac River from Cumberland to Little Falls.

The agency says recent rainfall has raised river levels and created dangerous, fast moving currents.

The warning continues through Friday and includes adjacent creeks and streams that feed the river's main stem. Professionally guided river tours are excluded from the warning.

For the latest information on Potomac River conditions, call the National Weather Service at 1-703-260-0305.
