Water was visually seen yesterday afternoon over airport road and other portions prompting Airport Manager Donnie Vandevender to close it for the rest of the day and overnight.

Flood water receded overnight and efforts were underway this morning, according to
Vandevender, to clean the taxiways.

The Thompson River west of Trenton may have been at its highest level ever.

to nearly 34 point three feet (34.28). That's more than four feet over flood stage of 30.
This morning, the Thompson River is reported to be down a bit, standing at 33 point nine feet and it's expected to continue dropping.
