Potential Flooding a Major Concern

Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - Governor Matt Mead says the state is very concerned about potential flooding.

Earlier this year, National Guard members packed more than 100,000 sandbags in the Greybull area after ice jams caused flooding.

Governor Mead says this year's snowpack is of more concern than two years ago, when the state experienced major flooding. He says he will be very proactive in deploying the guard if the need arises.

"We are going to be watching the weather very quickly," said Governor Mead. "If we have a week of warm weather followed by a week of rain, I don't think there's any question that we're going to have flooding problems. Where that happens we can't predict yet, but we're watching it very carefully."
