A state of local emergency remains in effect, but Lamont County is reporting improvement in areas affected by this week’s flooding.
According to the county, there is significant improvement in areas south of Highway 29 now that the frost has come out of the ground.
The north half of the county, especially near Andrew and north of Star, are still seeing some flooding.
“There's actually quite a bit of snow up there and large stretches of ice that look like lakes,” said Lamont County communications coordinator Heather Atkinson. “So while it still melts, we're still having a little bit of issues up north, but we're getting ahead.”
There are currently 28 road closures in place. The status of local roads continues to change.
Public works crews are continuing to work 24 hours a day to make road improvements. Crews will be working into the weekend to open roads where possible.
The county reminds residents to be cautious on when traveling on area roads. Roads are still soft and new washouts are appearing, some without warning. The county asks people to not remove or go around barricades and to report problems when found.
