High Waters Create High Worries Near Ethete

Weather conditions caused a highway near Ethete to flood and may lead to future road closures.
News 13 spoke with a few residents in the area about how this could impact their daily routine.
Walter Tidzump says he was just following his regular morning routine when, “I usually get up about five to let my dog out.”
After letting the dogs out Tidzump noticed from a distance, something different from before.
“About 6, I came out and seen that water was over running on the highway there.”
Overnight the water from the Wind River Range completely flooded a corn field and an overflow of the field also lead to five inches of water on Highway 132.
