FOOTHILLS BELOW 7000 FEET. THIS HAS RESULTED IN INCREASING FLOWS

AS WATER CONTINUES TO WORK INTO AREA WATERWAYS OVER THE NEXT FEW
DAYS THE THREAT OF ICE JAM FORMATION AND LOCALIZED FLOODING WILL
INCREASE. THOSE WITH INTERESTS NEAR WATERWAYS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR
ICE JAM FLOODING AND TAKE PRECAUTIONS NOW TO MOVE LIVESTOCK AND
