Data provided by the U.S. Geological Survey shows the Kokosing River's discharge rate (the volume of water that passes a given location within a given period of time, expressed in cubic feet per second) had surged after storms passed through Knox County late Wednesday night, making it dangerous for paddlers and swimmers to be on the water Thursday.
Within a recent span of five days, two people went missing in the Kokosing River. Both were last seen near Honey Run Park. Knox Pages spoke with local and state experts to find out what makes that stretch of river dangerous, and what swimmers and paddlers can do to stay safe.
