CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Little Wind River reached flood stage Thursday just south of Riverton, causing some minor flooding.

The river is expected to be at or near flood stage into the weekend.

Rivers and streams in central, southeast and southwest Wyoming are swollen with runoff from the melting mountain snowpack.

So far, flooding has been generally limited to mainly open areas along riverbanks.

Besides the Little Wind River, the North Platte and Laramie rivers in southeast Wyoming have been flowing around flood stage in areas of Carbon and Albany counties.

The Green River near LaBarge in southwest Wyoming has also risen this week to near flood stage.

Sections of the Popo Agie (pah-POE’-shuh) in Fremont County, and the Encampment and Medicine Bow rivers in Albany County are running high.
