CACHE COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for northeastern Cache County.

It’s expected to remain about flood stage at least until the first week of June. The warning currently goes through Monday, June 5.
At flood stage, minor flooding will impact the Birch Glen summer home development in Logan Canyon. Various campgrounds throughout Logan Canyon will also receive flood damage.
Officials are reminding the public to keep children and pets away from the Logan River. Water is running fast and cold and can sweep children and pets away.
