BONNERS FERRY, Idaho - Early Summer rain and snow melt is causing the city of Bonner's Ferry to jump in to flood mode.

The Army Corps of Engineers is releasing 40,000 cubic feet per second of water from the Libby Dam in Montana to reduce flood concerns. That dam runs in to the Kootenai river which runs through Bonners Ferry and causing the river to be above flood stage most of the week.

Right now the Kootenai river is running at about 1765 feet above sea level, which is above flood stage.          
   
County and city officials say only one home on Bonners Ferry is effected causing one family to get in and out of their home by boat. "I just actually got home about last week. I had left and I was able to park at the house, and well now I cant." Alicia Tatum says about the water that surrounds the home where she lives.

Boundary County, city and tribal officials met early Tuesday to discuss a possible flood plan and to make sure sandbags are ready in case more rain comes their way. Officials in Boundary county say it has unfilled sandbags at the ready in case water threatens more homes and businesses, but they are "optimistic" they will not need them.
