Utahns are coming together as the state braces for flooding after a historic snowpack this past winter.

Joseph Kerry has been tracking and posting videos of the concerning water levels flowing through the Ogden River to his community Instagram page for a month now.

“Sent out a call for volunteers yesterday afternoon through the local churches and some of our social media groups and CERT programs, and this is the response. These folks are just coming out of the woodwork to help," said Spanish Fork public information officer Nick Porter.“We’ve been looking really closely at river flow predictions recently, and this most current prediction has us reaching about 2,000 cubic feet per second as soon as Tuesday," he said.
