New parts of Lincoln flooding, other areas not as bad

Posted: Updated:

Mother nature has not seemed to let up for the residents in, and around the Lincoln area.

Roads have now turned into rivers, near where the Park Creek Fire took place last summer.

Lincoln fire chief Zach Muse has taken several photos of the area.

He says Friday night and Saturday rainfall washed out a ton of debris from the Park Creek fire.  Causing the creek to go well past its banks, and flood many parts of the Stonewall Creek road and Youderian drive. He says this incident can happen elsewhere as well.

“Watch them small streams, you see a bad thunderstorm coming some of these can go up and inch, two, or three inches real quick the way the debris gives out, especially on that north side there. We just saw it come down there and blow out stonewall creek. It could get you wet.” Said Zach Muse

According to Muse the main river by Lincoln isn’t affecting too many people at this time, but it is still flooded and beyond its banks in some areas. If residents need sandbags they can get them, and filled at Hooper Park.
