There have been a lot of closures along the Boise Greenbelt over the last few weeks and if the weather decides to be sporadic, we could be in some serious trouble. Hopefully, we'll never experience some of the losses we've seen in Idaho before.

Idaho has experienced millions in losses

According to records from Ada County, Idaho is no stranger to devastating floods and these natural disasters have resulted in millions of dollars in damage. Using that data from Ada County, we sorted out floods that caused a minimum of a million dollars of damage and unfortunately, there are six floods that met that criteria. One flood, in particular, caused $65 MILLION in damage.

A lot of these disasters are due to rain and snowmelt which can prove to be a destructive combination that has a damaging financial impact.

Let's look at the top floods that devastated Idaho and caused millions in damage in the process.

May Is Approaching... How Common Is Snowfall in Idaho This Time of Year?

You asked. We found out. The National Weather Service has 123 years of data to trace the latest snowfall of .1" or more in Boise. May snow is NOT typical for our area, but there have been traces of snow as late as June in 2008, 1954, 1950 and 1914. Here's a look at the history of May snow in Boise.
