Logan bracing for weekend flood potential

This could be a weekend for flooding, not only on the Blacksmith Fork River but also along the Logan River. Logan Emergency Manager Will Lusk told the Logan City Council Tuesday that he is in close touch with the state hydrologist from the National Weather Service to stay current with events.”At Tony Grove Lake you’ll see that, to date, we have 198% of average snow pack, the largest total the National Weather Service has on date of a snow pack up in our mountains,” Lusk told the council. “Many people have had various comments, some from we’re over-reacting to some we’re under-reacting.” Lusk says the city is hoping for the best but preparing for the worst.He says many hours have been spent filling sandbags and among the other preparations Light and Power Department crews have updated and raised transformers in the Country Manor Subdivision in southwest Logan. One hundred feet of Musclewall has been placed at the Riverside RV Park in southwest Logan as well.
