No flood watch now, but rivers expected to rise over the weekend

There is no actual flood watch in effect right now in Logan or Cache County but Hydrologist Brian McIneney of the National Weather Service says the local snow pack is the largest seen in 10 to 15 years. He says river levels are expected to pick up over the weekend and there is still enough snow to produce a flood scenario. McInerney says people need to be extremely cautious around rivers and creeks which are very cold and running fast. Residents of Logan’s Country Manor Subdivision are monitoring the Blacksmith Fork River and the CERT teams in the Wilson area are monitoring the Logan River in the Sumac-Thrushwood areas. Property along rivers have been sandbagged in preparation for high water. Currently the only road closure is Park Avenue west of the Logan River Golf Course.
