Kings River closed for all recreational activities

FRESNO, Calif.

The Resource Management Agency and Sheriff's Department closed the river Thursday - to all recreational use because of potentially dangerous conditions that includes swimming and boating.

Releases at Pine Flat Dam have been increased, creating rapid currents, debris and extremely cold water.

There's no estimate on when the river will reopen.
