Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is the potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. You should continue to monitor the latest
forecasts and be alert for possible flood advisories or flood
warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

If you observe flooding, please report your observations to the
National Weather Service in Pocatello via phone, E-mail,
