CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Minor flooding is occurring along some rivers and streams in parts of Wyoming after heavy weekend rainfall.

The National Weather Service says the Powder River in Johnson County is running out of its banks, flooding fields along its northern route. The river at Sussex reached a record crest of 15.63 feet on Monday.

Minor flooding also is expected along the river in Washakie County, including around the city of Worland.

The Laramie River at Fort Laramie in Goshen County is also is above flood stage. And a flood advisory is in effect for the Little Goose Creek in Sheridan County.

U.S. 20 between Thermopolis and Shoshoni remains closed because of a rock slide, but U.S. 212 and Beartooth Pass in northern Wyoming reopened Tuesday after being closed by snow.
