With their biggest celebration weekend ahead, Rock Creek Marina and Campground, Clinton County, Iowa recreational facility, closed its gate on Monday after water began spilling into campgrounds and submerged the grounds’ only entry point.

As of Tuesday the river was observed at approximately 19 feet, 2 feet above flood stage and rising quickly. By Thursday, the National Weather Service expects the river will crest at nearly 21 feet.

A big reason why that water is rising so rapidly is because of heavy and consistent rain in northern Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota, according to NWS meteorologist Dave Cousins.

Cousins added that Dubuque had 12.57 inches of rain in June, about 8 inches above normal, all of which is adding to the flooding troubles faced in Camanche and the surrounding areas.

If you park your boat or RV on your front lawn you could be looking at a $250 a day fine in Bossier City, Louisiana.

The ordinance was passed by Bossier City Council members Tuesday evening during their regular council meeting.

The ordinance states that residents cannot park their boat or recreational vehicle on the grass in their front or side yard. It also says residents cannot park them in the street if emergency vehicles can’t get around them or it obstructs the view of other drivers.

A handful of opponents voiced their opposition to the new rule but council members told residents in attendance that they received numerous phone calls in support of the ordinance.

Residents may have about 90 days to comply before police officers start issuing tickets.

1851972ANCHORAGE, Ak– A school ground isn’t your typical camp site, but these campers are doing more than just roasting marshmellows.

“It can be a free sport for the whole summer, we just ask that they provide eyes and ears adn walk around the school grounds,” Andre Camara, Camper Host Manager.

Vandalism was on the rise before the camper host program.

“Thus costing the school district thousands of dollars,” Camara.

Although there aren’t specific number, over the years with the camper host program vandalism has decreased.

“That the amount we spend on vandalism has begun to decrease each year and I can attribute that to having camper hosts provide an extra set of eyes and ears on the school grounds through out the summer,” said Camara.
