100 volunteers in the Burns area are winning the race to prevent more flooding along the Silvies River in Harney County. The river crested Wednesday night but crews from Oregon State Police, the National Guard and ODOT continue to fill sandbags and put them along the rain and snow melt saturated river. Harney County Judge Steve Grasty admits things have improved in the last 24 hours, but: “The river is still out of its bank. We have an incredible snowpack on the north side of Burns, so there's plenty more to come. It will be absolutely weather related. If we get warm rain, we'll be back in the same circumstance.” Grasty says if they have cold nights and mild days for the next month, they'll probably keep more flooding at bay.
