103 Major flooding with water beginning to flow around the north side of the dam between 103 feet and 104 feet.
102 Numerous homes and camps are flooded, including elevated structures have a few feet of water in them.
101 Major flooding is occurring around much of the lake. Several elevated structures will have water in them, with many more cutoff. Water covers Highway 394, 2 to 3 feet deep in the lowest spots. Highway 113 downstream of Bundicks Lake will likely be covered with water.
100 Major flooding can be expected. Numerous homes and camps are flooded around the lake. Water covers Highway 394 on the west end of the lake. Highway 113 downstream of Bundicks Lake is subject to flooding.
99 Moderate flooding begins. Several roads around the lake become flooded. Flood waters begin to get onto Highway 394. Highway 113 downstream of Bundick Lake may have water begin to flow over the road.
98 Minor flooding begins around the south end of the lake. Some of the lowest structures on the north end of the lake begin to flood.
