Area Rivers Slowly Receding, Only Flooding Occuring Near Laramie
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - All spring flood warnings have been lifted for central Wyoming and most areas of the southeast part of the state.
The only flooding occurring is in the Laramie area where the Laramie River remains about half a foot above flood stage. The National Weather Service says the Laramie River is falling and is expected to fall below flood stage by this weekend.
In Carbon County, the North Platte River at Saratoga has fallen just below flood stage. It is expected to remain close to flood stage for a couple of days, but then is expected to slowly fall during the rest of the week.
Elsewhere, rivers and streams in Fremont County have all receded below flood stage and are expected to continue falling.
