Water On The Rise, Closes Streets in Garden City Over The Weekend

An uprooted tree toppled into the Boise River on Friday and since then has moved several blocks downstream, causing major flooding in an area filled with businesses, warehouses, and mobile homes. On Saturday night, more than three blocks were full of water and rose several inches. The Ada County Highway District had to shut down several streets. Garden City Mayor says they are not sure about removing the tree right now. The river banks and the Greenbelt are too unstable to have heavy machinery there to haul the tree out of the water. If the tree moves down to Glenwood Bridge, the effects could be catastrophic.


Idaho Transportation Department and other emergency management crews are on standby if it gets close. Sandbags are in high demand right now. During the week, Garden City residents can pick up sandbags at the Garden City Library located at 6015 Glenwood Street (City Hall). 25 bags per Garden City resident and identification will be required. Garden City leaders say if you need assistance, call Ada County dispatch at 377-6790. Dispatchers will connect you with first responders or the best agency for your needs. KTVB says that the Red Cross is aware of the situation and will step in if people are forced to evacuate.
