Heading to the river? Life jackets required

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Make sure you bring life jackets if you're headed to the James River this holiday weekend.

The water level at the Richmond Westham Gauge Saturday morning read just above five feet.

Thanks to recent rain, it's forecasted to rise even higher over the weekend.

That means everyone will need a life-jacket.

That's the rule -- anytime the level is above five feet.
