Flooding Plagues Parts of Central and Western Wyoming
RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — Rainfall on top of the runoff from the melting mountain snowpack has sent some rivers and streams over their banks in central and western Wyoming.
Officials say six homes in a subdivision south of Jackson in Teton County were affected by flooding Monday when a mudslide blocked an irrigation ditch.
Meantime, flooding was occurring in west-central Fremont County along the Wind River near Dubois Crowheart and Kinnear where the river was about a half foot above flood stage.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation reported that Wyoming 132 on the Wind River Indian Reservation was blocked by high water in one area.
In northern Wyoming, the Shoshone River between Cody and Lovell was above flood stage, causing minor flooding of mostly low lying areas.
