Fresno County Sheriff's Deputies had to escort about 15 carloads of people out of Skaggs Bridge Park Thursday afternoon. At Lost Lake Park, far fewer people were swimming.

Sheriff's deputies say the flooded conditions and rising water are a deadly combination.

In the past week the Fresno County sheriff's boating unit has made several swift water rescues. Deputies plan to cite those who disregard the park closures.
