Adel - This week's rain may dampen your weekend plans, especially if you are headed to Reed Bingham State Park in Adel.

Flooding of the Little River and the lake at Reed Bingham has forced rangers to shut down their nature trails and put extra safety measures in place for boaters.

Even the railroad has changed routes for fear the water levels may rise above the tracks.

The water has risen so much, you can hardly see the dam and Rangers say it may only get worse. 

"So we are dealing with seven inches of rainfall and all of that has to come down the river and depending when it gets here, if this is not out of the way, its just going to keep building up more," says Park Manager Chet Powell.

They say if that happens they'll close the lake to boaters until the water level gets back to normal.
