The Snake River rose two feet during a hone-hour period this morning (Monday) and is continuing to rise. Residents in Payette County who life in low-lying areas near the Snake River are being asked to prepare to evacuate. 

If you live in an area that appears to be in danger of flooding, you have been advised to watch the river level as the ice jam continues to back up.

More information will be released as it becomes available.

Be safe. Be smart. People are more important than things.
