SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Melting snow has produced some minor flooding in the Spokane region
For the first time since 2012, the Spokane River, which hits flood stages at 27 feet, has risen above 27.5 feet.
By Wednesday, it's expected to crest at about 28.2 feet.
The Spokesman-Review says that last week the Inland Northwest experienced several days of rain and higher-than-normal temperatures, which contributed to lakes, streams, creeks and rivers rising to flood levels.
No major damage has been reported.
