    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Army Corps of Engineers say levels of lakes and rivers around the state have created danger zones.

    Both the Vicksburg, Miss. and Little Rock offices of the Corps are telling boaters and those heading to lakes and rivers to be aware of hidden dangers.

    With recent rains from storms this week, flooding has occured in many of those areas, leaving some recreation areas and other easliy-seen areas underwater.  

    According to the National Weather Service, the Arkansas River is over flood stage by three points in the state. Morrilton is almost an inch over, Pine Bluff is also an inch over and Houston is almost 7 inches above flood stage.

    Greers Ferry Lake, Clearwater Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Nimrod Lake, DeQueen Lake, Gillham Lake and Dierks Lake are all over conservative levels.
