KUSA - Yes, you read the headline correctly. There is a FLASH FLOOD WATCH for parts
of the Gunnison River in the Upper Gunnison River Valley. It's all because of an ice jam.
The ice jam is along the Gunnison River near Esty Ranch where minor flooding is already occurring. If the ice dislodges and heads downstream, the Gunnison River could rapidly rise 5 to 8 feet.
The Flash Flood Watch is in effect until Tuesday evening.
