BEND, Ore. (AP) - Warmer temperatures are alleviating a flooding risk that had concerned residents around the Deschutes River in Bend.

Ice forming over several days of freezing weather pushed water onto the river banks. The river rose between 8 and 10 inches, several yards and city parks were flooded and frozen, and a boat house in one backyard was partially flooded.

The Bend Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1zL3PYI ) that ice began to break and crack on the river surface Friday after temperatures rose above freezing. They were expected to remain in the high 30s and 40s through the weekend.

Officials say the water level receded 7 inches on Friday.
