The Big Wood River’s depth reached 4.2 feet on the Hailey gauge Saturday. Flooding surrounded at least one home on War Eagle Drive in the Della View neighborhood there. The National Weather Service in Pocatello posted a forecast Tuesday stating that the river is expected to rise to 5.37 feet around June 2, with the prospect of serious flooding diminishing after the first week of June. National Weather Service meteorologist Greg Kaiser said the forecast takes into account recent snowfall and other precipitation in the high country. “At this point, we’re not expecting major issues in that area,” Kaiser said. “But we will have to wait until late June for a complete conclusion, when all the snow has melted from the mountains.”
