Minor flooding is expected to continue for several days at the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette rivers in Oregon, the Associated Press reported.

The National Weather Service said Saturday that low-lying campgrounds and recreation areas, trails and parking areas are affected. It said the river is a little more than a foot above flood stage.

Although forecasters are awaiting a large amount of spring runoff from snow in the Rocky Mountains, the weather service said flows through Bonneville Dam are expected to be steady for several days.
