Deer River last week and over the week­end.

“There wasn’t re­ally an ice jam. When there is ice we also worry about where there is that bend west of the hos­pi­tal, down from New­cas­tle Beach where it tends to clog a bit like wa­ter go­ing into a fun­nel,” he ex­plains. “When the ice comes up we worry about it clog­ging. It moved up the beach a lit­tle bit on Fri­day but it has been mov­ing on.”

While typ­i­cally there is not too many con­cerns when the river goes out, he re­calls in 2014, the val­ley saw an ice jam, but it cleared with­out in­ci­dent.
