Minor Flooding Reported In Johnson County Friday

A Flood Advisory posted for Johnson County is in effect and scheduled to and expire tonight.
Some minor flooding has been reported, according to Johnson County Emergency Management Coordinator Marilyn Connolly.

Connolly spoke to Sheridan Media early Friday afternoon and said city and county personnel and many private citizens were busy working to clear roads and ditches of ice jams trying to prevent water from backing up further and causing more problems.

She said some minor flooding of roads was reported to her, and that the North Fork of Powder River between Buffalo and Kaycee had filled its banks but had not flooded as of Friday afternoon.
Some flooding of the roadway itself was reported on Trabing Road in the area of Wallows Creek Road, but she knew of no injuries or damage.
Other county roads had minor spotty flooding due to ice jams in ditches and culverts but County Road and Bridge spent the day clearing those.

City of Buffalo crews were also busy clearing ice jams and getting runoff water moving into sewer drains and away from intersections where water, snow and ice had backed up on most city streets.

Most residents are finding their yards inundated and runoff has found its way into garages , sheds, and other outbuildings in both the city and county, according to Connolly.

The flood watch posted for the city and county expires at about 8pm tonight.
