The fast snow melt is becoming more and more of a problem in many areas of Wyoming, especially those areas along rivers.

According to a release from the Worland Police Chief, emergency crews are continuing to work to alleviate the flooding along the Big Horn River, due to ice flow build up, on the city’s west side.

Several areas have already been evacuated.

Chief Gabe Elliott says there appears to be two major ice packs along the river, north of Worland, causing a majority of the problems.

Volunteers are being sought to help fill sandbags at the WYDOT building located at 15 Mile and West River Road.

Worland Public Health has also requested anyone who uses well water in the areas along the river, to not consume the water unless it has been boiled for 3 minutes.

Earlier this week, flooding forced emergency crews to close a stretch of US Highway 85 between Cheyenne and Torrington, and some flooding is also occurring in the Star Valley area.
