High Water Soaks Rogue Valley
31 Dec 2005 08:10 GMT
Flood warnings are in effect in as Jackson County braces for rain through the weekend. Though not expected to be a repeat of the '97 flood, but is threatening to put a soak on New Years Eve celebrations.
A US Geological Team observed taking flow measurements this afternoon reported Bear Creek's muddy, brown water flowing at around 3000 cubic feet/second (CFS).
Interstate 5 is closed "indefinitely" near Siskiyou Pass after several mudslides sent trees, stumps and mud onto the road. Highway 66 near Ashland is also closed at milepost 9.
