New Hampshire officials have issued a safety advisory for swimmers, canoeists and kayakers on the state’s rivers and streams, saying the currents are stronger and water levels are higher than usual time of year.
More rain is expected by Friday night, along with thunderstorms that could roll in with a weekend front. State officials say this would intensify already-high water levels in rivers and streams around the state.
The forecast calls for sunshine starting on Sunday, bringing in days of hot, humid weather – conditions that often encourage residents and visitors to head to the waterways.
In recent weeks, four people have drowned in New Hampshire rivers and streams.
