... Flood Watch in effect from Thursday morning through Friday

The National Weather Service in Boise has issued a

* Flood Watch for a portion of south central Idaho, including the
following area, the Big Wood River in Gooding County of the
western Magic Valley.

* From Thursday morning through Friday afternoon.

increase flows on the Big Wood River downstream in Gooding
County beginning Thursday.

cfs late Wednesday night. At flows of 5300 cfs below magic dam,
floodwaters will spread downstream along the Big Wood River and
impact Gooding County. River levels will be about 1 foot below
the surface of Highway 46 bridge north of Gooding at these
flows. Minor flooding will occur upstream from the bridge.
Travel time of floodwaters from magic dam to Gooding is about 24
hours.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

current forecasts.

flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
