Flooding keeps up as ice jams Bighorn River

Mar 11, 2014 - The Associated Press

MANDERSON -- Flooding continues along the Bighorn River in northern Wyoming because of ice jams as the state National Guard aided efforts to protect two towns.

Guard members stacked up sand bags in Manderson and Greybull on Monday.

The National Weather Service says sandbags were used to divert water around the Manderson school and water treatment plant. No evacuations were reported.

A flood warning was posted until 3 p.m. Tuesday for the area.
