As of early Thursday, March 6, no major flooding has been reported in Ravalli County, but officials are getting prepared.

Minor flooding has been seen in some areas as the current rain showers and temperatures in the 50s have caused massive melting of the foot of snow that fell last week in the valley.

Drivers have been driving through large puddles of standing water and dodging huge potholes on streets as water backs up in areas of poor drainage.

Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman and Emergency Management Director Ron Nicholas are telling people who are experiencing flooding to call their local Volunteer Fire Departments. The departments have supplies of sand bags and sand.

Nicholas said the Ravalli County Office of Emergency Management also has answers to questions about resources and preparedness.

Of course, if you’re in an emergency or life-threatening situations, call 911.
