in Ovid and Paris. Water has flooded secondary roads in and around
Pegram, Geneva, and between Bloomington and Saint Charles.
Flooding has also surrounded at least one home near Dingle. Nearly
0.25 inch of rain fell overnight with another round of
precipitation expected Sunday night and Monday. Additional
rainfall with likely exacerbate ongoing low land flooding through
the weekend.

deaths occur in vehicles.

a dam floodgate release in...
south central Caribou County in southeastern Idaho...
western Franklin County in southeastern Idaho...

* until 115 PM MDT Sunday

Alexander Reservoir near Soda Springs due to snowmelt and runoff
which has necessitated dam releases. As a result, minor flooding
of low lying areas is expected along The Bear river downstream
from west of Niter to Thatcher, and from Riverdale south to the
Utah border. Additional flooding will remain possible over the
next several days as high flows from the upstream dams continue.
In addition, elevated flows due to snowmelt and runoff on the cub
river near Franklin and Whitney may result in minor flooding.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Thatcher, Whitney and Riverdale.
