After a couple days of heavy rain, the Payette River is rising and now at minor flood stage. Record high temperatures earlier this week have given way to heavy rain, and that’s led to a flood warning for the Payette River. The water levels of the Payette River were around 9.6 feet Thursday afternoon. The river is expected to crest at a little over 12 feet today. That level doesn't cause too much concern, but if it gets worse, the city of Emmett might have a few problems to deal with. Bruce Evans with Emmett Public Works is watching the river closely.
