Providence declares state of emergency

With a flood warning still in effect until Friday, a state of emergency has been declared in Providence. The declaration came Wednesday night at a city council meeting after Utah Governor Gary Herbert had made a similar declaration for Northern Utah. Providence officials say they don’t yet know the extent of the damages to homes and businesses but the swollen Spring Creek has already forced the evacuation of two Providence families. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service reports that the Logan River is expected to have its highest flows Thursday and Friday.
