WATERLOO (KWWL) -

After re-opening on Monday morning, George Wyth State Park closed again on Monday evening due to flooding on the Cedar River.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources closed the park last week after heavy rains in the northern portion of the Cedar River basin caused the river to rise above flood stage.

Now, with heavy rains in the area of the park over the weekend, the DNR has closed the park again and expects it to be closed through this weekend.

The Cedar River is expected to crest in Cedar Falls at 91.3 feet Tuesday afternoon, but is not expected to fall below flood stage until Sunday afternoon.

The river is expected to crest at 14.4 feet in Waterloo on Tuesday afternoon, but is not expected to fall below flood stage until Friday afternoon.

For updates, call the park office at (319) 232-5505.
