The Wood River Drainage and Levee District says photos circulating on social media may have inadvertently frightened some residents of Hartford.  The picture shows what is described as a soil slide and not a break in the levee itself, and officials say there is no danger of a levee breach.

Levee District officials posted on their Facebook page that area residents would be notified in the event of an emergency, but the levees are monitored and are currently holding as expected.  The photo from the weekend shows sliding soil on the Hartford side of the levee on Canal Road.
