Flooding Worries Minimal
In spite of above average precipitation and snowpack in southern Idaho this year state officials aren’t expecting any serious flooding. The National Weather Service says just exactly what will happen as far as flooding remains to be seen since most of the problems occur in late May. Officials are saying those living along waterways should consider moving items back away from the rivers or streams and that should be adequate. They are not expecting flooding like what occurred along the Big Wood River in Lincoln and Gooding Counties in 2006. Jay Breidenbach with the National Weather Service says there should be plenty of irrigation water for farmers this growing season.
