Predictions that this year’s above-average snowpack would lead to flooding are coming to fruition.

Bonner County Emergency Management announced Wednesday that the warm temperatures, runoff and rain mean the Pend Oreille River will likely exceed flood stage this week.

Residents who need sand and sandbags can find resources at these locations:

• Bonner County District 2 Road and Bridge shop on Eastside Road
• Selkirk Fire in Sagle, on Gun Club Road
• Northside Fire, across from Pack River Store
• City of Sandpoint’s shop (2024 Industrial Way)
• Sam Owen Fire in Hope (they have bags only)
• Northside Fire Station 1 (bags only)

Those with questions should contact Bonner County Emergency Management at 208-265-8867.
