Records Levels on North Platte

Tracie Perkins, Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Forecasters are expecting the North Platte River to reach record levels this weekend in Carbon County.

The National Weather Service projects the river will hit 10.5 feet on Saturday afternoon in Saratoga. The record peak there is 10.5 feet, set in 2011.

About 25 miles downstream near Sinclair, the river is expected to come close, but not hit, the record 11-foot mark.

The North Platte is about a foot and a half above flood stage now because of melting mountain snow and recent rain. While low-lying areas have been flooded, volunteers, Wyoming National Guard members and others have prevented major property damage by piling sandbags to protect homes and businesses.
