The floodwaters have receded in Prineville this morning; but it was a close call for several homes and a barn. Tuesday night a couple of homes were threatened by high water from a nearby drainage ditch crews even built a wall with sandbags and evacuated animals from a barn.  Crook County Emergency Manager Sgt. James Savage says the water was almost an unwelcome guest in one home: "And with the warmer weather and the heavy rains and the snow started to melt, it was more than the ditch could handle.  It went over the banks and pooled in an area and this one residence at 2555 Paulina Highway had water right up to the back of the house." Savage says crews stayed overnight to make sure that the water couldn't get into the home.  He says this happens often when there's a rapid snowmelt and heavy rains.  If you live near a drainage ditch it's important to clear out any debris so it doesn't get clogged and add to the problem.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
