Blaine ID-Lincoln ID-Minidoka ID-
1117 AM MST TUE FEB 21 2017

The National Weather Service in Pocatello has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
  Rain and Snowmelt in...
  Southeastern Blaine County in central Idaho...
  Lincoln County in south central Idaho...
  Minidoka County in south central Idaho...

* Until 1145 AM MST Thursday

* At approx. 10:00 AM MST, emergency management officials reported
  reported continued flooding for mainly Northern and Eastern
  Lincoln county as well as Southeast Blaine county. Widespread
  flooding continues for Minidoka county too. Additional rain on
  snow and saturated ground as well as windy conditions will create
  additional low-lying flooding this afternoon through the evening.
  A cool down and overall dry period Wednesday through most of the
  weekend will aide to slow down of flooding, though it may take a
  couple of days to see the full effect.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Burley, Rupert, Heyburn, Shoshone, northern Lake Walcott, Paul,
  Richfield, Minidoka, Dietrich, Acequia, Shoshone Ice Caves, Bear
  Trap Airport, Kimama and Laidlaw Corrals Airport.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying
spots.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All
interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.

Big Horn-
523 AM MST TUE FEB 21 2017

...A FLOOD WARNING FOR AN ICE JAM REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 800 AM MST
WEDNESDAY FOR SOUTH CENTRAL BIG HORN COUNTY...

At 5 AM MST, the river gauge on the Big Horn River at Basin was at
10.7 feet. Flood stage is 10.5 feet. The Big Horn River at Basin
crested at 11.2 feet around 10 pm Monday night. A steady, slow fall
is expected at Basin, but the Ice Jam flooding could worsen
downstream on the Big Horn River including the Greybull area. The
river at Greybull is expected to crest right around flood stage of
92 feet on Wednesday.

Other small streams and creeks across Big Horn County feeding into
the Big Horn River, such as Nowood Creek, could also be running high
or flooding in some areas.

Some locations that will experience flooding include Greybull,
Basin and Manderson.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

River ice is very unpredictable, and may move and jam with little
notice. Any ice jam can cause flooding, as the ice dams the river,
causing rapid increases in river levels in a short period of time.
People living near the Big Horn River should monitor the situation
closely and be ready to move to higher ground if flooding occurs.

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.
