KHQ.com hosting live blog with water safety expert

Posted: Updated:

The fast waters of the Spokane River are keeping rescue crews busy.
     
The river between Harvard and Barker roads is dangerous because of fast-moving water and debris accumulating at the Barker Bridge construction site. Officials are asking boaters to stay off that portion of the river.
     
On Sunday, one woman was rescued by Spokane Valley firefighters after becoming wedged in the debris while floating in her raft.
     
Six water-rescue incidents have been reported so far this year.

Tonight, KHQ.com will host a live blog with John Flaherty of the Northwest Whitewater Association to discuss water safety.

The live blog is scheduled to take place between 5 and 6:30 p.m.
