Flood Impacts & Photos Collapse
If you notice any errors in the below information, please contact our Webmaster
21.1 FEMA flood insurance risk maps indicate that this stage corresponds to the 0.2% (500 year) flood level. Your property is at risk for flooding during a record flood event. A 500 year flood is a flood that has a 0.2 percent chance of occurring in any year. A flood of this magnitude has not occurred here since record keeping began.
20.55 This is the river stage corresponding to the June 2006 flood of record.
18.98 This is the crest of the April 2005 major flood which resulted in several million dollars of damage to over 100 buildings and six bridges.
18.7 FEMA flood insurance risk maps indicate that this stage corresponds to the 1% (100 year) floodplain. Your property is at risk for flooding during a major event. A 100 year flood is a flood that has a 1 percent chance of occurring in any year. In the past, water has reached this level one time since record keeping began.
18 This is the major flood stage. Numerous properties and structures are flooded from Cooks Falls to East Branch.
17.8 This is the crest of the January 19, 1996 rapid snow melt and heavy rainfall flood.
16 Water spreads across Cooks Falls Road from Cooks Falls to Butternut Grove. Properties and homes near the fire station are affected by flood waters. Chiloway Road in Horton is flooded out at this level.
12 Between 12 and 16 feet, recreation areas, campgrounds and some low lying properties along the river become flooded from Cooks Falls to East Branch.
10 Minor flooding of lowland agricultural areas begins along the river.
