Snowmelt is causing the Black Fork River to rise as shown in downtown Shelby on Sunday, Feb. 28.

Shelby City Councilman Garland Gates reported in a tweet on Sunday that the continued snowmelt and rainfall resulted in a 5-foot rise in the Black Fork's water level in downtown Shelby.

"Water is flowing at more than 900 cubic feet per second," Gates reported in citing data from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Gates is a member of Shelby City Council's Safety Committee and is a former Shelby mayor. This video was taken Sunday afternoon.
