It was a group effort in the Prineville area to stop homes from flooding near the Cowboy Court subdivision. Travis Jurgens with the Crook County Sheriff's Office says several basements did flood; but the waters are receding now. There are still some dangerous spots in the area and drivers need to be careful. "My suggestion to people is if they come to a road that does have water flowing over it, and if they come to a section that has water flowing over the top of the road, one I would say, if they are able to safely do so, I would say turn around and not try to make it across it. There's no telling what the road condition is like; no telling what kind of supports are underneath the pavement and there's no telling for sure how deep the water actually is."  The heavy rains on Saturday and Sunday also filled the Prineville Reservoir to the point that the irrigation district needed to release the extra water into the Crooked River.
