Chickasaw recreation area closed due to weather

Apr. 28—After the area was besieged by rain and a large tornado Saturday night, the Chickasaw National Recreation Area at Sulphur is closed due to rapidly rising lake levels.

"We are closing the Lake District as well, meaning the entire park is closed," a social media post read. "We will post more info and pictures as they are available. Stay out of the park so our emergency responders can focus on their own safety instead of yours."
