Flood Warning in Teton County
Teton County — June 14, 2022 —

Due to the recent rain and the increase in temperatures we are experiencing an increase in the risk of flooding. The National Weather Service has put out a flood warning that indicates that the runoff will peak sometime within the next few days resulting in minor flooding. Below you will see the current prediction by the National Weather Service for flooding on the Teton River. They update this forecast twice daily at around 10AM and 7PM here.

The County and Cities in coordination with emergency services will be monitoring conditions and will publish information as needed.

What should the public do?
● Pay attention to the National Weather Service Flood Watches and Warnings. A link to our local Pocatello office’s website is here.
● Never try to walk, swim, drive or play in flood water due to the uncertainty of the depth and the flow. Moving water minimizes the ability to see damaged or washed away road beds, holes or submerged debris.
● Do not camp or park your vehicle along streams and washes.
● Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize flood dangers. Local creek depths typically peak between midnight and 5:00 am.
