(FREMONT COUNTY) – Two more eastern Idaho counties have announced that rising flood waters have overwhelmed their capacity to respond. Fremont and Madison counties have both declared a state of disaster. Local News 8 reports that the high water is posing a threat to the North Twin Bridge in Madison County, with both bridges being washed out in the 1997 flood. Those needing sandbags in either county are urged to call their local sheriff’s office.
