The National Weather Service in Great Falls has issued a
* Flood Warning for urban areas and small streams in...
Lewis And Clark County in west central Montana
* until 245 PM MST Friday
* at 245 PM MST warm temperatures continue to melt snow sending
moderate amounts of melt water over local roads. Small creeks and
streams are also filling... causing rural flooding.
County law enforcement and emergency service agencies are reporting
numerous areas of water flowing across major and secondary roads
across Lewis And Clark County. Ponding of water is expected in urban
areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other poor
drainage areas and low lying spots. Travelers should be prepared to
encounter hazardous Road conditions.
A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
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.
