The Riverton office of the National Weather Service has released their final 2014 “flood potential outlook” for Western Wyoming. The area around LaBarge is listed as “moderate-high” potential, and parts of Star Valley are listed as “moderate”. The rest of the County should have relatively low potential for flood events caused by waterways. Residents of areas listed as “moderate” or “high” are encouraged to take mitigative action before runoff reaches its peak. Remember that extraordinary events, such as severe thunderstorms, sudden and prolonged increase in temperatures, as well as other factors can cause flooding anywhere in the County. For questions regarding flood potential or how to prepare, contact Lincoln County Emergency Management at 307-885-3626 or 307-877-9835.
