Buhl flooding

A road destroyed by floodwater sits closed Feb. 9 in Buhl. After a historic snowfall, warm weather caused an overabundance of water in the canal system. A breach near Buhl resulted in the displacement of several families. Flooding along Interstate 86 caused a 36-mile road closure for several days. ‘The damage to our roadways just from these winter events is right around $9.2 million,’ Twin Falls City Manager Travis Rothweiler said.
