The spring snow melt runoff in lakes and rivers is dangerously cold
and can be life threatening for those that come into contact with the
water. Take appropriate precautions.

Be aware of large debris in the river. High water levels can push
logs and other large debris into the river...increasing the danger to
people and boats.

Never drive cars...Trucks or sport utility vehicles through flooded
areas. The water may be too deep to allow for safe passage. As little
as one foot of water on the road can move most vehicles off the road.
