Search And Rescue Operation Underway In Zion National Park

ZION NATIONAL PARK, Utah (AP) — Zion National Park officials say a canyon in the park is closed due to a search and rescue operation in progress Tuesday morning.

 

Park officials did not release additional information on the operation in Hidden Canyon but said in a separate Twitter post that a flash flood watch has been issued for Zion until 10:00 p.m.
