SALT LAKE CITY -- Flood warnings remain in effect for parts of northern Utah Monday morning although some water levels have decreases since Sunday.

At least two rivers in northern Utah are still above flood stage, but residents near the rivers hope the worst is behind them, at least for now.


The south fork of the Ogden River near Huntsville has been spilling over its banks along several miles, flooding some campgrounds and farmland. Those with homes or farms near the river are doing what they can.

"Our sandbags up the river there had breached, so it's just a river all through here," one resident said.

In Cache County, the Blacksmith Fork River continues to cause problems.

The Country Manor subdivision in Logan had to be evacuated for a time Sunday because water from the river was flowing up through storm drains and flooding basements of nearby homes.

Power to the area was shut off but later restored.

The water has receded since Sunday but the river remains at 110 percent of flood stage. Check water levels through the day at KSL's exclusive Flood Watch River Flow Tracker.
