Recent rains have helped make flooding quite the story lately.

With more water flowing through, Sioux Falls city officials issued an advisory Thursday morning recommending people stay away from and out of the flood waters.  The city specifically names the Big Sioux River and Skunk Creek.

Just today, a mom and her son were rescued from the Big Sioux after their canoe tipped.  We’re talking to two canoeists who saw it all happen.

Where are you seeing increased water levels?  Has the flooding affected any of your summer plans?

While it’s causing problems for most, more water means quite the show at Falls Park.  One of our photographers says it’s the fullest he’s ever seen.

Also, Salute to the Troops is going on this week to honor past and present military.  We’ll have details on the event for you later today.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced another crib recall.  This time, two million drop-side cribs.  We’re looking into this recent recall and what it means for mandatory standards for crib-makers.  We have links to the CPSC and more details on this story.
