Logan Flooding

Posted: Updated:

The flood of 2013 has hit in some places in our area.

It's not river flooding, but over-land flooding caused by the rapid melting of the past 36 hours.

Jim Olson takes us to Logan, where the hills above town have dumped their melted snow right into the town.

(Denise Markel, Logan Resident) "It's quite a bit of water."

Quite a bit of water is an understatement. Here in Logan, the snowdrifts of yesterday are the torrent of water of today.

(Denise Markel, Logan Resident) "The biggest problem is our culvert had been mostly frozen shut. I think the more the water flows through it, it will get better but now it's just wait and see how high it gets." (I see you have your shovel - what's the plan?)

(Jonathan McCabe, Logan Resident) "We've been trying to dig out the culverts here that have been frozen up in the center, so I've been beating it with the shovel for a while and then just clearing away the debris to keep the water moving."

Jonathan McCabe is watching the water closely - hoping it'll stay where it is and not invade his garage and basement.

(Jonathan McCabe, Logan Resident) "Between the hours of one and two it was within six inches of going in my basement. And it's just non-stop."

This part of Logan is a few blocks away from the Mouse River - meaning these homes stayed high and dry in the record flood year of 2011.

(Natasha Greenlee, Logan Resident) "It's weird, we survived the 2011 flood, it doesn't get to us, but now because it's backed up with the ice, here we are stuck."

(Denise Markel, Logan Resident) "The water came about 50 feet from our house in 2011."

But tonight, they're right in the middle of flooding brought on by a snowy winter and a late spring. In Logan, Jim Olson, KX News.
