OTHELLO, WA – The highway between Colfax and Othello is getting more work done.  Last fall a bridge east of Othello on Highway 26 was replaced.  It took much longer than expected for several reasons, but safety over the train tracks was one of the more important ones.

Melting Snow & Frozen Ground

GregCraber 1214

OROFINO, ID – Clearwater and Idaho Counties are part of an area of concern for the National Weather Service right now.  Because of the melting snowpack and frozen ground, there’s a good chance for spring runoff to accumulate in low-lying areas and cause flooding instead of soaking into the ground.  Ice jams in creeks and streams can also cause flooding behind them.
