Dawson Springs, KY - (AP) The past few days of rain has caused much inconvenience and much damage to Western Kentucky but it has also brought in some unexpected tourists. Cruise ships have begun touring the area for the first time ever.

Western Kentucky connects to the Gulf of Mexico via the Ohio and Mississippi rivers and river traffic is usually reserved for commercial barge traffic carrying coal, oil, corn, wheat and soy beans to destinations globally. Now with the deepening of the rivers and lakes cruise ships have started offering shore excursions in the small towns of Western KY.

"This was a rare opportunity to take our passengers to visit ports-of-call that are not some exotic Caribbean port city but towns with real people and in the interior of the United States", said Cpt. Julio Sansadra captain of the Panamanian flagged Holland America "Duchess" cruise ship. The "Duchess" is currently docked at Redden's Boat Dock on Lake Beshear while the passengers are on shore excursion in Dawson Springs. The tourist dollars are quite helpful and local merchants have benefited from the cruise ship passengers.

    whale spotted in illinois river A humpback whale was spotted near Morris IL in the Illinois River today. The sighting comes just days after 2 Great White Sharks were seen frolicking in the same area. While not impossible, it does seem unlikely. It is thought that the whale may have followed the sharks as they sometimes do in the wild. The whale would of had to travel over 1250 miles to get to this location. The Marine Biologist Association will be in town for a full investigation. Until we have answers, we are asking folks to keep their pontoons and fishing boats docked.

    two great white sharks found swimming in mississippi river near saint louis, missouri. While it is not entirely impossible, it is incredibly uncommon for salt water dwelling creatures to stay for lengthy periods of time in fresh water. However, two Great White Sharks have managed to survive the trip and make their way up the Mississippi River somehow. Believed to have started as a mating couple, the two are assumed to have swam the 920 mile journey from the mouth of the Mississippi River that is connected to the Gulf Of Mexico. Officials in Saint Louis have contacted the Missouri Conservation Department and will likely have a team in the river soon to capture the two lost sharks.
