Flood concerns have eased in the Yakima Valley after warm temperatures caused some flooding on the North Fork of Ahtanum Road last week. Scott Miller Director of the Yakima Valley Office of Emergency Management says many rivers and streams in the valley are still full of ice and it needs to melt over time. "If we get temperatures in the 45 to 50 degree and the ice breaks lose as opposed to melting" then he says we could have more flooding problems. And he says if we get warm temperatures in the mountains and a warm wind in the valley a major flood could follow. But at this time no problems are being reported and miller is hoping for a slow melt into spring to avoid any major flooding in the Yakima Valley.
