The Grande Ronde River is two feet higher than flood stage from recent rainstorms

TROY, OR - There's moderate flooding along the Grande Ronde River Monday night, and the U.S. National Weather Service is reporting major flooding in the forecast.

These photos are from viewer Doug Mallory who's out in Troy, Oregon.
Right now river levels are reaching up to twelve feet. That's two feet higher than flood stage. The flooding is forecast through Wednesday morning and expected to drop below flood stage by then.

Asotin County Emergency Management Coordinator Butch Aiken said there are no reports of injuries or damage to personal property but there have been reports of mud slides.

"They had a huge, huge rain storm in northeast Oregon," said Aiken. "Not a lot of it in Asotin County but that's where it started, so it caused the river to raise tremendously."

And as you can see from this video of the Snake River, debris and water levels are affecting us here down river. The weather service warns spring snow melt runoff is dangerously cold and can be life-threatening. Large debris in the water also increases danger to boats, so move about the fast-flowing rivers with extreme caution.
