FLOOD WARNING
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ELKO NV
335 AM PST WED JAN 18 2017

For Lamoille Creek, including Lamoille, minor flooding is expected
this morning.

Snow melt high up in the Ruby Mountains is moving downstream on
Lamoille Creek during the morning hours and causing steady rises
each day. It is possible that Lamoille Creek will overflow its banks
this morning, causing minor flooding near the bridge and town.

Cold air moves into the area Thursday and will stop the snow melt
process so flooding after Wednesday is not likely.
