View the Flood Warning Press Release

2/11/14: Flood Warning: The National Weather Service Spokane (www.weather.gov/spokane) has issued a flood warning for Spokane County from 2200 hours, Tuesday, February 11, 2014 until Sunday evening, February 16, 2014.

The expected rain and warmer temperatures will melt our existing snow and could cause standing water in yards and on roads. This extra water will likely pond due to our deeply frozen ground which can’t absorb water and could create hazards.
