Laramie Flooding Not Severe
Laramie, Wy – The National Weather Service has put a flood warning in place for Laramie. The head of Homeland Security in Albany County, Randy Vickers, says they say the Laramie River is flooding when it's five feet deep in the city. He says Monday it rose six inches past that stage, but he says there isn't a concern until it reaches six feet deep and it shouldn't get to that level.
Vickers says a few homes are in danger of flooding and so is agricultural land south of the city. But, he says there is no risk now of a flash flood so people should be able to stay safe. Vickers says estimates are that the river will crest Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
