FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) — Lake Worth and its city-operated ramps are closed to all boating activities.

The City of Fort Worth said the lake has risen about 4 feet in the past 48 hours: At 11 a.m. Saturday, the lake elevation was 596.61 feet, more than two feet above the spillway. At this elevation, boat wakes can cause flooding in some homes and some docks could be out-of-sight underwater.

Residents around the lake with boats are being told to keep their boats off the water while the ramps are closed.
