FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - State officials say flooding has temporarily closed the Ballard Wildlife Management Area in western Kentucky.

Tony Black, who is wildlife regional coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, says there are "safety concerns" about road travel due to recent rains.

Black says staff began checking for visitors on Wednesday and would close the entrance gates after the property has been vacated.

The 8,015-acre wildlife management area is located in western Kentucky's Ballard County along the Ohio River.
