Flood Alert Sounded

flood prep

Teton County Sheriff Deputies Monday conducted door to door visits to provide information about flooding preparedness in parts of the county considered particularly at risk.  Among those neighborhoods visited are residences along Fall Creek Road including Red Top Meadows, Highland Park Estates, Hidden Hills Ranches, and Butler Creek, as well as areas along Middle Meadow Road and the Solitude subdivision. Emergency Management Coordinator Rich Ochs says the initial contact was pretty much a community service in nature. Ochs says there have been high water issues in these areas in the past and the county wanted people to be aware that they could become isolated if there were to be a high water event.  In the meantime, Ochs says the county is focusing protecting the levies as the run-off is increasing. Teton County officials are encouraging residents to monitor spring runoff conditions throughout the spring/early summer season.  Currently, the National Weather Service has issued a flood watch through tomorrow for the Jackson Hole area as snowmelt accelerates in the high country.

  • Bigger trucks aren’t always better - August 19, 2014
    I recently had the rare opportunity to test a compact and a full-size pickup pretty much head-to-head. Going into it, I was pretty sure there was nothing the compact version could offer that I would like more than the full-size truck. But the Nissan Frontier, despite its size, is no less truck than the Nissan […]
