PELL CITY, AL -

The recent rain has increased water levels, including the level at Logan Martin Lake.

Officials are warning folks to be careful ahead of the forecasted rain.

The latest data shows that on Thursday the water level reached 468.50 feet, which is about three and a half feet above full.

Pell City Police Chief Greg Turley says he toured the lake this morning and found a few patches of debris and some is making its way into yards.

Here's what homeowner Trent Richardson had to say: "We've seen pieces of docks, pieces of boats, pieces of lawn furniture, refrigerators, everything that people have had on their boat docks or out around the lake. It honestly starts floating and washes down river."

The police chief is asking folks to be vigilant and cautious in the water, but says levels should return to normal soon.
