Bridge Damaged by Baxter Creek
January 23, 1951

Baxter Creek flooded Monday afternoon and washed out a bridge on the county road in Honey Lake Valley, south from Missouri Bend school.

A veteran rancher in the area said it is the greatest runoff in 25 years. He said the static water level in a well, normally nine feet, now has risen to 39 inches.

Water was receding today beyond flood waters were running a quarter of a mile wide over fields in the area Tuesday, but no crop damage is believed to have been done.
