Episode Narrative A rapid warm up developed in early March after significant snowfall at the end of February and the beginning of March. The warmup resulted in a rapid snowmelt which was enough to cause minor to moderate flooding on the Rock and Redwood Rivers. Lowlands along the rivers were flooded, but no significant damage to farmland, homes, or other property was reported. No significant rain fell during the flooding period, and the flooding subsided during the middle part of March.
Event Narrative Warm temperatures caused a rapid snowmelt which caused the Redwood River to rise above flood stage for a few days. The flooding was generally minor, and no significant damage was reported. The river crested at around 2 feet above flood stage at Marshall on March 13th, and at Russel on March 14th.
