Flood Levels Drop Slightly In Bingham Co--
Warmer Temperatures Forecast this weekend
Idaho Falls--The Snake River continues to rise along the Snake from Ashton to Heyburn--The river has hit floodstage and is expected to crest, depending on temperatures and melting snow. A sudden heatwave, could prove disasterous, according to county emergency managers.
Since mid-May the Snake River has invaded the lowlands around Blackfoot, some homes are threatened and the call for sandbags have gone out in the neighborhoods along the river.
Bingham County officials said the river rose above 12 feet over the Memorial Day weekend.
“It was 11.97 (Monday) morning at 9 o’clock and it’s dropped a little bit since then,” Bingham County's Director of Emergency Management Craig Rowland said.
