The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Central Yakima County and South Central Washington. The warning remains in effect until 4:30 p.m. today (Feb. 10). Emergency management officials say they're seeing flooding where the north and south forks of Ahtanum Creek merge and they say flood waters are moving down the creek toward Union Gap. If you live in an area where you see flooding, be prepared for more water later.

Here is the latest from Yakima County Emergency Management:

"An ice jam broke loose at 2:40 a.m. diverting the water out on the county roadway. Yakima County road crew is working on directing the water back into the creek.  The Yakima County Sheriff's Office has closed North Fork Ahtanum Road and Ahtanum Road west of Slavin Road. Open to local traffic only.  There is no flooding in Ahtanum Creek and that means no flooding going toward Union Gap.

Five houses were threatened by the flood. One was house badly damaged. Residents were evacuated and working with the local Red Cross to find a place to live.
