Parts of Wyoming see flooding from heavy rain; snow falls in Bighorn Mountains


CHEYENNE, Wyoming — Areas of Wyoming are seeing flooding from heavy rain over the weekend.

The National Weather Service reported flooding in areas of Fremont, Hot Springs, Johnson and Goshen counties.

The Powder River at Sussex reached a record flood crest of 15.5 feet Sunday.

Thermopolis, Hot Springs State Park, Torrington and Kaycee are some of the places seeing high water. Minor flooding also occurred in the area of Lander and Buffalo.

The Wyoming Transportation Department says U.S. 20 between Thermopolis and Shoshone is closed because of fallen rock along the highway.

Meantime, up to 6 inches of snow fell in areas of the Bighorn Mountains.

Beartooth Pass near the Montana border northwest of Cody is closed because of snow. Crews had just cleared the pass of winter snowfall on Friday.
