Flooding Along Bighorn River in North-Central Wyoming
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Flooding because of melting mountain snow now includes the Bighorn River in north-central Wyoming.
A flood warning has been posted until midmorning Saturday for the Bighorn and Greybull rivers. Log jamming is contributing to high water on the Greybull River.
The Bighorn River at Worland is expected to fluctuate between 11.2 and 11.5 feet. Flood stage is 10.5 feet.
Flood warnings remain in effect through early Saturday afternoon for the Wind River around Dubois and Riverton in central Wyoming.
In southwest Wyoming, flooding continues along the Green River from the confluence with the New Fork River to Fontenelle Reservoir.
And a flood warning is in effect until Saturday morning for Pine Creek, which runs through Pinedale in Sublette County.
Low-land flooding is expected from the high rivers.
