Oyster River users warned

Tubers who plan to cruise down the Oyster River should take warning.

Area resident Randy Calvert contacted the Mirror on Monday to warn swimmers and tubers about the current dangers.

He said water levels are up and a group of men in their mid-20s got caught under trees in the river on the weekend and barely made it out. They had entered the river off of James Cres.
