Ice Jams cause flooding at Elk Creek.
Emergency management officials warn of a moderate risk of flooding because of ice jams. An ice jam at Elk Creek in Lake City at a campground is causing some problems. Officials say the mix of warmer weather and melting snow is causing problems. According to reports from the scene, this is the first ice jam at the campground in more than a decade. Dale Robinson of emergency management urges homeowners to move valuables out of basements and unclog storm drains to prevent potential damage. He says a regular flood risk is low, but there may be some isolated ice jams.
