The National Weather Service in Spokane has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
  Rain and Snowmelt in...
  Bonner County in the Panhandle of Idaho...
  Boundary County in the Panhandle of Idaho...
  Shoshone County in the Panhandle of Idaho...
  Stevens County in northeastern Washington...
  Ferry County in northeastern Washington...
  Central Spokane County in northeastern Washington...
  Pend Oreille County in northeastern Washington...

* Until noon PDT Saturday

* Recent rain and snow melt will result in increased runoff with
  areas of small stream flooding...as well as field flooding.
  Flooding will continue to remain a threat for many area
  lakes...including Davis...Williams...Eloika...and Newman. Our
  unusually wet and snowy winter has raised the water table
  unusually high over north Idaho and a large portion of Washington.
  Flooding is ongoing in many areas. This includes the Colville
  River going over Highway 395. Additional rainfall is likely today,
  Friday, and again next Monday.  Friday looks to be the wettest
  storm system of the next 5 days.

* The saturated ground has produced conditions ripe for landslides
  and debris flows on steep slopes around the area. Residents with
  homes on or at the base of hillsides should be aware of the
  potential for landslides and watch for trees leaning in unusual
  orientations...water and mud seepage where not expected and other
  signs of potential ground movement.

* In addition to small stream and field flooding...the Spokane
  River...St. Joe River...and Lake Coeur d`Alene will continue
  to experience flooding this week.

* Additional mudslides or road washouts are possible as well.


Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
