CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Flooding is occurring along the Laramie River in Albany and Goshen counties in southeast Wyoming.

The river is swollen with runoff from recent heavy rain and snowmelt.

Minor flooding is occurring around the city of Laramie where the river reached 8.4 feet Tuesday evening. Flood stage is 8 feet. The river is expected to crest at 8.9 feet on Thursday.

In Goshen County, the river is a little over a foot above flood stage, causing moderate flooding in the Fort Laramie area. But the river is not expected to get any higher.

No major flood damage has been reported in either county.
