DOUGLAS, Wyo. (AP) - Wednesday’s storm that hammered parts of eastern Wyoming caused damage to roads in the Medicine Bow National Forest and the Thunder Basin National Grassland.

U.S. Forest Service officials say anyone planning to visit the forest or the grassland should be aware that many roads are impassable and portions of both areas are inaccessible.

The large thunderstorm that hit eastern Wyoming on Wednesday night resulted in widespread flooding. There was also a severe wind storm near Laramie Peak that downed many trees, including many that fell on roads and trails. Forest Service crews are working to clear areas but new hazards are still being discovered.

Travelers should check with agency offices before heading into affected areas.
