State Disaster Declarations made in Idaho

State Disaster Declarations have been made for seven north central and northern Idaho counties with flood issues associated with snow-melt and ongoing precipitation.

Idaho Governor C. L. “Butch” Otter has signed declarations for Benewah, Bonner, Boundary, Clearwater, Kootenai, Latah, and Shoshone counties.

Water levels along the Coeur d’ Alene River, the St. Joe River, and numerous other bodies of water within each of the counties in the state declaration, have risen dramatically, causing widespread flooding, mudslides, water over roads, damaged levees and flooding of homes and basements. Two homes have received significant damage due to mudslides.
