Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Warning
Issued: 9:10 PM MDT Mar. 21, 2019 – National Weather Service

... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 915 PM MDT Monday for
central Oglala Lakota... west central Jackson and southeastern
Pennington counties...

Gage reports and weather spotters continue to indicate that flooding
continues along the White River. Moderate to major flooding is
ongoing from the Nebraska state line to The Badlands. Snowmelt,
combined with ice break-up and debris in The Channel, is causing the
water levels along the White River to fluctuate. Most of the snow
cover has now melted, and frost in the ground is beginning to give
way. However, flooding is expected to continue through the weekend
into early next week.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
areas along the White River from south of Slim Buttes, to
Rockyford, and to the interior area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles. Stay away or be swept away. River banks
and culverts can become unstable and unsafe.

Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 2:59 PM MDT Mar. 22, 2019 – National Weather Service

... The flood advisory remains in effect until 1045 am MDT Tuesday for
Haakon... southeastern Meade... Oglala Lakota... Jackson... Bennett and
eastern Pennington counties...

River gages, County officials, and weather spotters continue to
report minor flooding in low lying areas due to melting snow.
Drainage issues are also occurring due to blocked or overwhelmed
culverts, causing water to pond or run over roads. With mild
temperatures continuing through the weekend and light rain and snow
showers expected across the area over the next few days, flooding
will persist or worsen.

In Pennington County, weather spotters have reported that many roads
remained closed due to water over the Road, including 156th Avenue
near New Underwood. Rapid creek and the Cheyenne river remain high
over eastern portions of the County, but the river is currently
within their banks.

In southeastern Meade County, Elk Creek is running high, and ice
continues to break up along the Belle Fourche river. Creeks are
expected to rise this weekend, which could cause water to run over
some rural roads.

In Haakon County, tributaries into the bad and Cheyenne rivers
remain high as snow continues to melt, leading to minor flooding.
Gages along the bad river near Midland indicate that water continues
to rise, which could lead to low land flooding later today through
this weekend.

In Jackson County, Highway 63 remains closed at the White River
crossing south of Interstate 90. Minor flooding continues around the
South Fork of the bad river and on bear in the Lodge creek, with
more significant flooding occurring along the White River.

In Oglala Lakota County, high flows persist along White Clay,
Porcupine, American horse, and Wounded Knee creeks, in addition to
other drainages across the County. Although much of the snow has
melted, any additional snowmelt, along with light precipitation
through this weekend, could lead to continued low land flooding.

In Bennett County, high flows continue along the little White River
and tributaries flowing into the little White River, with water now
flowing over some rural roads. With additional snowmelt and light
precipitation across the little White River basin this weekend, low
land flooding could worsen.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.
