Weather Service Issues Minor Flood Advisory For Central And Southeast Idaho


By Paul Johnson

Southern Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The National Weather service in Pocatello has issued a areal flood advisory for minor flooding of poor drainage areas in the Wood River and Mini-Cassia area.

The advisory is in effect until 11am Saturday.

According to the weather service, the combination of very warm temperatures and additional forecast rainfall on existing snowpack and frozen ground may create excessive runoff.

The weather service said that saturated and frozen soils may prevent infiltration of water and create ponding and flooding of areas such as basements, fields, small streams and area roads. In addition, “sheet flooding” may occur.
