Zion National Park is currently closed as a precaution due to rising river levels and potential flood damage to roads and infrastructure. The Zion Lodge and Watchman Campground in Zion Canyon are being evacuated to prevent the possibility of park visitors being trapped in the park by rising water levels. The park will be closed until the river level begins to drop and damage can be assessed. The river level early Tuesday morning was 5,000 cubic feet per second (cfs). The level is predicted to reach 8,000 cfs later in the day. The normal cfs at this time of the year is 40 to 50 cfs.
