The Kootenai County Sheriff's Department in northwestern Idaho is keeping an eye on rising water levels and is reminding people to watch out for flooding, KXLY-TV, Spokane, reported.

In Cataldo, flooding is almost as regular as the changing of the seasons.

At the Kahnderosa RV Park water is already spilling over from the Coeur d'Alene River on the RV park's property, which sits along the river's edge.

Park owner Wade Kahn has already moved his cars to higher ground as he prepares for the river to crest as early as this Sunday. Kahn just hopes the flooding doesn't impact his business.

"As long as it's done by Memorial Day I'm good," Kahn said.

Higher water means low lying roads may become flooded, and the sheriff's department is keeping an eye on several areas including Latour Creek, Hauser Lake, Rose Creek and, of course, the Cataldo area.

The sheriff's department recommends people who may be affected by road closures to stock up on medicine and supplies for the next few weeks.
