Local flood advisories and warnings issued

Contact: Tom Johnson, Public Works Director, 970-328-8882 or tom.johnson@eaglecounty.us 

Emergency services personnel throughout the county are advising residents and guests to exercise caution around local creeks and rivers as water levels in the area continue to rise. The National Weather Service in Grand Junction has issued a flood warning for the Colorado River near Dotsero and a flood advisory throughout the rest of Eagle County due to melting snow. The advisory is in effect until Thursday and includes the towns of Avon, Eagle, Gypsum, Minturn, Red Cliff and Vail.

River users should evaluate flows carefully before deciding to enter. Also, fast moving waters can cause bank instability, so caution should be exercised when walking or fishing along the edge of streams and rivers. Citizens who observe large amounts of debris in the water near bridges or significant running water in unusual places should call 911.

Officials are monitoring creeks and rivers 24 hours a day and will attempt to alert property owners of potential flooding through 911 call backs, through Emergency Alert System broadcasts on local radio stations and through EC Alert, the county’s free community notification system. Subscribe to EC Alert at www.ecalert.org to receive real-time emergency information to a cell phone, pager or other electronic device via text message and/or e-mail.
