Idaho National Guard air lifts two people from flooded house in Idaho Co

STITES, Idaho - The Idaho National Guard air lifted two people from a flooded house near Grangeville on Tuesday afternoon. 

Heavy rain and snow melt has caused extreme flooding in several parts of north and central Idaho. On Tuesday, several cities in Idaho and Lewis counties were under flood advisories and warnings. 

The Idaho National Guard launched two helicopters to assist with the rescue; a UH-60 Black Hawk and a LUH-72 Lakota. Idaho Army National Guard flight paramedics and Boise Fire Department dive team rescuers were on board.
