(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – The winter snowpack for much of eastern Idaho is now well over 100 percent of normal, raising concerns about the possibility of spring flooding. Officials with the Idaho Department of Water Resources say the area above Palisades Reservoir is at 144 percent of normal, while the Henrys Fork and Teton regions are at about 123 percent. Authorities say there is still plenty of room in area reservoirs to capture excess runoff, but there could be minor flooding problems if the wet weather continues.
