(UNDATED) - Swimming areas and boat ramps at several state reservoirs are closed due to low water levels.

Levels at Patoka Lake, Mississinewa Lake, Raccoon Lake and Salamonie Lake are too low to allow swimming and boat launches, but the reservoirs themselves remain open.

DNR's Christie Wilmoth says allowing those activities at the affected reservoirs could be dangerous.

Wimoth says this usually does not happen at this time of year, she says beaches and boat ramps are usually closed due to high water. She adds other state reservoirs are at healthy water levels such as Leiber State Recreation Area, Monroe Lake, and Brookville Lake.

Wilmoth says it could take two straight days of rainfall for water levels to be back to normal.
