Several homes in Crook County experience potential flooding Tuesday evening.  A clogged drainage ditch threatened a home on Southeast Hill Drive in Prineville yesterday around 8 p.m.  Crook County Sheriffs Deputies find a clogged drainage ditch backing up water flowing through a culvert that ran under Hill Road.  The Crook County Road Department was able to clear the debris and water from the home's back yard.  Then two homes on Southeast Paulina Road also were threatened with flooding as a drainage ditch on the Highway had extremely high water that continued to rise. Crook County Search and Rescue were activated and they began to build a defensible wall of sandbags on the east side of the residences to prevent the water from coming into the house. Heavy rain and snowmelt along with debris in the culverts are determined to be the cause of the high water. Crews monitored the situation overnight and will continue to watch today. No homes were damaged.
