RILEY CO., Kan. (WIBW) After previously advising visitors to leave the Rocky Ford and Riverpond areas of Tuttle Creek State Park, the USACE has now closed the sites as of Sunday, May 26.

The Kansas Highway Patrol will close all vehicle access on eastbound Kansas Highway 13 (at the start of road across the dam) at 7 a.m. on Monday, May 27. Access to Tuttle Cove Road and Riley County Fire Station 12 off Highway 13 will remain open.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch until Monday morning. Residents are encouraged to be prepared to take action should any warnings be issued.
