PRESS RELEASE

RENEWED FLOOD WATCH ISSUED FOR MOSCOW AREA


April 11, 2019 (Moscow, Idaho -- The current weather forecast has issued a flood watch for Whitman, Latah, Nez Perce, and Lewis Counties.  With the additional rainfall, the Moscow area would experience localized flooding this evening through Friday. T

The City is asking residents to take the following steps to help minimize the impact of flooding:
  • Help keep any known catch basins near your property clear of debris
  • Do not drive through water across a street.  Gauging the depth of water can be difficult.
  • Respect road closures, and do not drive around signs. 
  • Should localized flooding occur at your property, the City has an ample supply of sandbags that are available to residents free of charge.  There is a filling station at the City Shop located at 650 N VanBuren Street equipped with sand, bags, and shovels.  If you have concerns, please contact us at  208-883-7097. 

The City of Moscow will continue to monitor conditions and respond to areas of need.
