Flood Warning – Again

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Warning for the Bitterroot River near Darby and a Flood Watch for the rest of the valley this week.
The river level is expected to crest about a half foot above flood stage by Thursday. The flood stage at Darby is 7.5 feet and the flood stage at Bell Crossing near Victor is 11 feet.
Warm weather with temperatures in the 80s this past weekend contributed to the rise in water levels. The cooler weather that has settled in will last for a couple of days, but will also bring more rain showers.
Flooding is expected in low-lying areas adjacent to the Bitterroot River and across several county roads. Which leads us to the main Tip of the Day…don’t drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. It is ALWAYS deeper than it seems and only a foot of water can move a vehicle off the road. The Weather Service reports that most flood deaths occur in automobiles.
So when you see water running across the road in front of you … Turn around – don’t drown.
