One hundred volunteers are working overtime in the Burns area filling sandbags to prevent more serious flooding there. Harney County Judge Steve Grasty says things have improved in the last day, but they are staying vigilant: “So the latest is the Silvies River crested last night, don't know exactly what time, late evening. It's dropped about a foot from 3600 cubic feet to 2800.” Oregon State Police, Natural Guard, ODOT and other state agencies are in Burns to protect the levee and to prevent more flooding. Volunteers have put 25,000 sandbags along the rain and snowmelt swollen river. A few homes have been flooded, some unoccupied and Highway 20 east of Burns is closed in spots and probably will be for several more days. Detours are in place.
