Areal Flood Warning
Statement as of 3:50 PM MDT on March 10, 2014
... A Flood Warning for rapid snow melt remains in effect until 215 PM
MDT Tuesday for Golden Valley... Wheatland and Musselshell counties...
Emergency management officials report that significant flooding is
occurring across Musselshell County. Many roads across the County
are either closed or impassable due to flood waters. This includes
Highway 12 west from Roundup to Lavina. Many small streams and the
Musselshell river are flooding due to melting snow and in many cases
ice jams. The Musselshell river is at major flood stage from Roundup
to the town of Musselshell.
Some flooding is also occurring in Golden Valley and Wheatland
counties on several small streams and along portions of the
Musselshell river... especially from Shawmut to Lavina.
One half inch of rain fell across the area during the day Monday and
another half inch of moisture in the form of rain and snow will fall
tonight. This moisture may prolong or aggravate flooding through the
middle of the week... and could cause additional water rises in other
areas as well.
Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.
To report flooding... have the nearest law enforcement agency relay
your report to the National Weather Service forecast office.
