TWIN FALLS, ID (KMVT-TV) As the flows run high at Shoshone Falls, you might notice, the level of the Snake River is rising.

This can be seen at Centennial Park in Twin Falls.

The water of the Snake River has risen so much that it has slowly been creeping up over the boating ramp and the docks.

This could be due to a combination of precipitation, snowmelt, and reservoir release.

The river is at, or near flood levels, but so far, officials are not worried about damage.

Earlier this month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued flood warnings for most of eastern Washington and northern Idaho.
