Heavy snow in forecast for flooded Fremont County
Laramie, WY – There is more moisture in the forecast for Fremont County, in areas that already have been dealing with flooding for close to a week, from the Popo Agie and Wind Rivers. Public information officer, Christian Venhuizen, says the forecast is calling for three to six feet of snowfall in the mountains so rivers are likely to rise again.
"The Little Wind River is still very much in flood stages and we're anticipating that by the end of the week it will reach near record levels again and those records were set just a day or two ago."
Venhuizen is one of 120 Wyoming National Guard members on the ground right now. They are helping with sandbagging and security. Venhuizen says there are still no reports of deaths or major injuries associated with the flooding, but he says there are about 140 homes that are either already flooded or in danger of flooding.
