Idaho, Cache Valley/Idaho Portion

Areal Flood Advisory, Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 1:15 PM MDT on March 26, 2017

Expires 3:00 PM EDT on March 27, 2017


The National Weather Service in Pocatello has issued a

* flood advisory for...
a dam floodgate release in...
south central Caribou County in southeastern Idaho...
western Franklin County in southeastern Idaho...

* until 115 PM MDT Monday

* emergency management personnel reported high inflows into the
Alexander Reservoir near Soda Springs due to snowmelt and runoff
which has necessitated dam releases. As a result, minor flooding
of low lying areas is expected along The Bear river downstream
from west of Niter to Thatcher, and from Riverdale south to the
Utah border. Additional flooding will remain possible over the
next several days as high flows from the upstream dams continue.
In addition, elevated flows due to snowmelt and runoff on the cub
river near Franklin and Whitney may result in minor flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Keep children away from storm drains, culverts, creeks and streams.
Water levels can rise rapidly and sweep children away.

A flood advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.

... Flood Watch now in effect through Monday afternoon...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* portions of central Idaho, eastern Idaho, south central Idaho,
and southeast Idaho, including the following areas, in central
Idaho, big and little Wood River region, Lost
River/pahsimeroi, and Sawtooth Mountains. In eastern Idaho,
upper snake Highlands. In south central Idaho, eastern Magic
Valley. In southeast Idaho, Cache Valley/Idaho portion,
Caribou Highlands, south Central Highlands, and Wasatch
mountains/Idaho portion.

* Through Monday afternoon

* excessive snowmelt along with Lower Valley rainfall.

* Mild temperatures coupled with lower elevation rainfall will
enhance snowmelt across the region resulting in areas of low
land flooding. Water over roads and flooding near homes is
possible. Areas near creeks and streams may be especially
vulnerable to flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
